It is long been recognized the sacrifices made in The Great War (1914-) and Second World War by Irish people in Ireland and Northern Ireland and now the poppy should be wore with pride.
This shunning of it belongs in the past let's move on and respect the fallen.
The Gaa needs to take the lead and show leadership and get GAA President and County Chairpersons to wear one at this time of year and reach out and be cross community.

The GAA are a non-political organisation. They should not endorse the Poppy appeal. Nor should they have had an 1916 commemoration in Croke Park 3 years ago.

What else? Form a lodge and march on the Glorious Twelfth?

And dont forget to commemorate those that drove in on their saracens to croke pk and shot dead innocent people and those paratroopers in Derry and many many more british armed forces who murdered innocents on our streets. Get real ffs and learn what exactly the poppy represents.

Even so, it shouldn’t have happened.

I particularly enjoy those people who wear multiple poppy ensembles...maybe a metal pin and a plastic flower.
It is what it is. Presumably.

The British Legion tries to defuse the apparent poppy fascism, from their website:

"The poppy is a well-known and well-established symbol, one that carries a wealth of history and meaning with it. Wearing a poppy is still a very personal choice, reflecting individual experiences and personal memories. It is never compulsory but is greatly appreciated by those who it is intended to support."
