Snarlene tweeted congratulations to Harry and Megan (sic). Some hilarious replies on twitter.

Who/what is the funding organisation that has rejected the application from Campa Mhacha?

This article in the Armagh Gazette also fails to say which organisation rejected the funding application.  Strange.

It appears that the blame is being placed on Royal Mail for delaying the delivery of the application.

I don't have the link unfortunately but it was interesting to see people absolutely lose their sh*t at the PSNI Down facebook page for daring to do a post as gaeilge following their visit to a bunscoil in Downpatrick. It's sad that people actually feel threatened by a language.

Wouldn’t pay any heed to those posts, you get them on virtually every Irish News, Bel Tel and Belfast Live news story on Facebook. More and more people are becoming “proficient” with social media, and feel the need to spout their bigoted idiocy for the world to see. I browsed the comments on that PSNI post for about 30 seconds, the people complaining tend to be either retired/unemployed, Loyalist or Unionist and semi-literate - all the telltale signs of a moron with nothing better to do with their time. One guy was confused as to why there was no post in Ulster Scots...

She blamed it on one of her skivys - can’t take responsibility for anything!
