UTV news broadcasting loyalists, unionists and their supporters singing "F**k the Pope" on the steps of Stormont. I wonder if it will be bleeped out before being broadcast on the news?

I’m not being hyperbolic but Northern Ireland is seeing the emergence of a small but energetic anti-democratic right-wing extremist insurgency, which is using new tactics (vexatious legal actions and social media outrage to generate profiles via the mainstream media)

Wrightbus CEO Buta Atwal said on Good Morning Ulster “With the protocol, NI is now in an ideal position to be able to trade freely across Europe & the UK. We should be maximising this advantage.” Sammy Wilson said Buta didn’t understand the protocol.
Ballymena-based Wrightbus has signed a deal with German Bus operator Regionalverkehr Köln GmbH (RVK) to supply up to 60 Kite Hydroliner single deck buses over the next two years. Significant in that the continental EU market has long been tough for Wrightbus to break into.

And yet no-one has done more to hasten it's demise than Jeffrey's party. Sweetly ironic is it not?
Look forward to todays events to celebrate our centenary. To all taking part - walk with pride in this place, for all that we’ve achieved together & with hope for the future. They told us NI would never see this day. We defied them then & we will defy them again for the next 100.

To avoid a repeat of this bloodshed M'joy built Moyry Castle in 1601 to secure the pass once and for all. The small tower commanded the southern entrance to the Moyry. Its role was replicated 400 years later with the construction of British army hilltop posts during the Troubles

Not called @Irelandbattles for nothing & here's one of the biggies. Forget the galloglass and kerne, this is when the English realised they were up against an Irish adversary that was technologically superior & tactically more sophisticated than themselves-Battle of Clontibret
OTD 1595 The crown got the shock of its life when Tyrone attacked Bagenal's army at Clontibret. Attacked on 3 sides by Irish shot supported by pike and horse, the English stalled and began to waver,but a near-suicidal cavalry charge allowed Bagenal to break contact #nineyearswar
