I see according to the Irish News "many Gaels are angered" because Waterford said "Northern Ireland " instead of the "6 Counties".
Will these "Gaels" refuse to accept money from the Northern Ireland Executive and the Dept of Sport NI?
Have those "Gaels" heard of the Good Friday Agreement and its acceptance by a huge majority of the Irish people?

What a clown

I know its difficult to accept that the north of Ireland is part of Ireland when you left it behind and turned your back on it so many years ago. With Irishmen like you about we'll never become a United country.

As for Waterford and their statement, its plain to see how their CB looks at the North, on another note, Westmeath never made a complaint and managed to find their way to the second city and play, We'll be in Carlow next week, with no complaints either

So someone (not me I usually refer to the 6 Counties) says "Northern Ireland"  they somehow think it's not part of Ireland??

Then the likes of trueblue and duffleking come ploughing into the fray.
If some "Gaels" are so sensitive to Waterford using the official name of the 6 Counties I presume they wouldnt sully themselves by touching any money coming from the "NI Executive" or the "Dept of Sport NI".
They'd also want to get rid of that Ulster Council of the GAA who were issuing statements mentioning the 2 jurisdictions and different restrictions etc.

Derry or Doire Colmcille.

I have a problem with hypocritical extremists though.

Do you think people in the North should be calling it Londonderry?

They can call it whatever they want as long as they don't think they have a right to tell me what to call it.

I'm not sure that's the official name though so why do you make and exception given your earlier position on "Northern Ireland"?

I call the place the 6 Cos usually.
I was making an issue of "some Gaels" being annoyed by Waterford CB saying "Northern Ireland".
Poor Sean Cavanagh got abuse earlier in the tear for saying "Northern Ireland", some of it ironically from a Member if the Beitish Parliament.
By the way there were 2 advertising signs behind the goals in Healy Park, Omagh with "www.tyrone.co.uk" on them
Hope those "Gaels" dont find out.

Sean Cavanagh didn’t get abuse for saying “Northern Ireland”.

We've had this discussion before.

As already stated, there are loads of northern 'gaels' who use the term ni...muppets the lot of them.  Then when they got pulled up on it they got all defensive.  No better to me then the west brits of the 26 counties.

Very disappointed that Waterford GAA used the term, and rightly so, they got a serious slating for it.  Unfortunately, that the way a lot of people in the 26 counties think of the 6 counties.  For them Ireland stops at Louth right around to Donegal.  They, from history, might have an excuse, but the so called 'nationalists' in the north who use that phrase have no excuse.

By the way, fair play to Westmeath - they came to Antrim with no hassle.

Maybe ye could impose a 12 month ban on any GAA people saying "Northern Ireland".
Maybe force them to go through a re education process before they can renew membership.
We have to keep GAA people pure and untainted.

In the meantime ye need to get rid of those ads from Healy Park.
