I remember hearig about signposts in Ulster-Scots language being ripped down by Loyalists who thought it was Irish. Numbskulls.

Sorry, I got the nature of the story wrong. I thought it was the "prods" who burnt it.

And as for the Saltire, what statement are they trying to send out? It would appear that this is as good a reason as any to stay away from the politics of that part of the world.

Any anti-Scottish sentiment in Ireland is down to the role played by Scottish regiments in suppressing Irish nationalism/republicanism and of course the use of Scottish flags and imagery by Unionists and Loyalists.
I totally condemn the burning of our national flag at this bonfire- those who did it are completely wrong and misguided.

Funny do you not think how everyone forgot about the role of the Irish regiment is the highland clearances and their butchering of any that resisted?

Of course any Irish person who allowed themselves to be used as a tool of oppression by the British is a traitor to be condemned. The Irish nation is somewhat redeemed by the Irishmen who fought alongside the Scottish Jacobites and Gaels at Culloden amongst other places and in other times. There are presently many Irishmen and Scotsmen who have taken the English shilling to oppress the people of Afghanistan.

The Irish see our national flag paraded at the front of Orange marches alongside the BA,they also remember the brutality caused by Scots troops ie Black and Tans.We have to re educate them as we have to re educate the otherside.Members of Crann Tara had a cold reception last year in the south or Ireland but the locals soon warmed to them once a bit of re education was done.

Aye. Perhaps some members need to read up on and learn our history. Siol nan Gaidheal has always supported the struggle of our Irish brothers against the British State - it's exactly the same struggle that we are involved in, FFS. However, their fight, whilst closely allied to ours, is not exactly the same, since slightly different routes have been chosen. The outcome, however, is identical - complete separation from the Brit State and a total rejection of Brit values, in any shape or form. These include the stigmata of sectarianism, and unfortunately these are open to interpretation and misinterpretation. Brit rules, Brit division, and Britannia rules yet again... Read between the lines, people, and interpret accordingly.
