As the title states,

Niall McConnell or also known as the Irish Patriot from Donegal ran in the general election this year.
One of his slogans or quotes he likes to reference is "Drain the Bog".

Does anyone else find this a bit cliche/cringe everytime you hear it? Like the minute I hear it,
I just think of a Irish Donald Trump wannabe?

Drain the bog is meant to be a semi joke based on Trumps rhetoric. Niall is adding some humour to his campaign, as Irish people like a rogue.

I understand that, but like it's a bit much and it clearly didn't work out for him

None of it has worked out. Attempting to bring about that sort of individualist fuck-you Yank spirit in the Irish electorate is a doomed endeavour - our people bent the knee and handed over the keys to Europe long ago, and happily so. We are in a long term battle to shift the optics of this population replacement such that our native people actually give a shite.

O Connell happy to be photographed with the BNP who wanted Irish people hanged for the IRA's campaign and attacked Irish Cultural Centers. A real patriot is Niall.

Well the Brits that bombed Ireland should be hanged. Any patriot should be proud to get a martyr's death. Stop your effeminate whining.

It's an old Irish euphemism for when the jacks get clogged up.
