What really gets to me is his essentially "Political Correct" attitude to criticisms of dodgy associations coming from Niall. If someone made an argument to me that I was being an ignorant tribalist bigot for holding the Colm O'Gorman type of Gael from a Catholic background in contempt I would roll my eyes- however that is exactly what he has being doing in using the whole "United Irishmen" trope to justify criticism of his involving himself with people I believe are very Spiritually ugly.Well done to the Burkean for writing a concise piece documenting the multilayered operation being orchestrated in Ireland by British loyalist Jim Dowson to part Irish fools with their money. The damage being rendered on Irish nationalism as a whole by the continuance of this Loyalist-run shyster scheme is very significant.

On yer bike Niall.
I am sure all this friction can be resolved over a cup of tea, Barry's of Cork obviously.The whole solicitor's letter thing and the whole "you will be hearing from my solicitor" thing is really a sign of extremely bad character.

Niall McConnells Honor Guard of Irish Flags leading the YV to the Custom House gave a depth of probity, decorum and sense of committed purpose to an otherwise disorganised marching crowd.I think it makes them look serious.
Much better than a yellow vest.
Some of the Orangemen are good pipers !Niall McConnells Honor Guard of Irish Flags leading the YV to the Custom House gave a depth of probity, decorum and sense of committed purpose to an otherwise disorganised marching crowd.
Many onlookers clapped in support and it was a great PR exercise.
McConnell is making a big impression in Patriot circles and setting the standard for activism.
A bagpiper would have been the icing on the cake.
It's little more than a point in principle rather than practicality, but theoretically..Hopefully, ...Before that.!
If worse is going to become worse...Let it happen while you're still in the Majority.
