Here it is, courtesy of Wikipedia:
Status of Northern Ireland
that the majority of the people of Northern Ireland wished to remain a part of the United Kingdom;
that a substantial section of the people of Northern Ireland, and the majority of the people of the island of Ireland, wished to bring about a united Ireland.

Also:
The Irish Constitution was also amended to implicitly recognise Northern Ireland as part of the United Kingdom's sovereign territory,[4] conditional upon the consent for a united Ireland from majorities of the people in both jurisdictions on the island.

The fact that the prods have managed to water down St Patrick's day parades up here in the north by issuing statements making people feel that they cant fly a tri-colour and in fact banning the national flag from parades by treating to withhold funding if they are flown shows that nationalist will still bow down. This needs to stop.

To be fair, St Patrickís Day is not a day for tricolours. Nor is it a day for wearing Celtic shirts. Or stupid feckiní leprechaun hats!  St Patrick (supposedly) brought Christianity to Ireland, not Catholicism. The day has been hijacked with all that. Itís not Ireland Day, itís a saints day.

There are are some Protestants who celebrate it. There would be more only they probably donít feel comfortable being in the middle of what looks like a Celtic match.

While unionists will do anything to water down the Irishness, on this occasion I reluctantly see their point.

To be fair, St Patrick’s Day is not a day for tricolours. Nor is it a day for wearing Celtic shirts. Or stupid feckin’ leprechaun hats!  St Patrick (supposedly) brought Christianity to Ireland, not Catholicism. The day has been hijacked with all that. It’s not Ireland Day, it’s a saints day.

There are are some Protestants who celebrate it. There would be more only they probably don’t feel comfortable being in the middle of what looks like a Celtic match.

revisionism at its worst
of course he brought Catholicism to the country what do you think they are protesting about .
As for Tri colors  etc that more to do with it also being Ireland's national day rather than an expression of religious fervor.

Whatís a tricolour got to do with St Patrick though?

Protestants are Christians. They are entitled to celebrate St Patrickís Day and lots do. But most avoid the paddywhackery and I donít blame them.

If you want to fly a tricolour, a day commemorating Irelandís (part) independence from Britain is the day to do that. If you have to wear anything on St Patrickís Day it should be shamrock, and shamrock only.

Some miserable cnuts around too.
All holy days are celebrated in the correct traditional fashion throughout the year right enough.
Some fat hoor in a red suit was there helping deliver the baby Jesus. Everyone ate a bit of chocolate egg when they heard he had fcuked off from the tomb. St. Valentine was a keen gardener known for his rose bushes.

Christ almighty, lighten up.

So the English have no business flying the flag of St George on St George's Day? The Scots have no business flying the Saltire on St Andrew's Day? The Welsh have no business flying their national flag on St David's Day?

Different scenario. The flag of Scotland and England are their saints flag. So ok, technically if youíre for flying a flag on St Patrickís Day, it should be the one below, and not a tricolour.

Wasn't that red x concocted by the Brits so it would fit neatly onto the Union Jack?
