Replying To MiAmigaVERONICA:  "And you are factually wrong when suggesting that there is 'no effective opposition in Leinster House that can be reasonably considered as a viable alternative capable of running the country'. Or maybe you just don't like this this called democracy."
Tell me, how can SF be considered a reasonable alternative when their policies and history alienate them from the parties they will need to align with to form a government?

It is all getting Very political here guys... take a chill pill.... time and a place, and all that....!

The 6 counties v all of Ulster v 26 counties v 32 counties, and political allegiances are very divisive...
and some of the comments need to be reined in a wee bit.... a lot of baggage and chips on shoulders..!

Time for Happy thoughts everyone.... ;o) Time for a Kit Kat...

(and I thought having to constantly listen to the perennial kerry whingers was bad enough....)

Replying To Htaem:  "If you really want to stop SF/IRA from getting elected, best thing to do is hold the election at the weekend and close the polling stations at 3pm, most of their supporters will still be in bed at that stage ;-)"
Is that you Jim Allister or is it one of the DUPers? :-)

King Billy and his boys must have done some serious fertilising down in that part of the country after their victory

Replying To Saynothing:  "Tiocfaidh Ár Lá. They'll fight the corner of the ordinary 5/8 as well as the " GENTRY"."
And there we have in the past two posts exactly why SF won't be in power long. Galway poster calling our Gardaí the RUC! As we saw with the Crossmaglen crowd recently, murdering unarmed Gardaí seem to be fair game. Second poster claiming violence in the south if SF/IRA don't get their way... added a TAL for good effect. The terrorism and violence is just below the slim veneer of attempted civility.

The vast majority in the south are decent people and don't want to share their country with bandits and terrorists.

The Premierleague is on most weekends as well, the shinners supporters love nothing more than a good game of English club football, that should really keep them away from the polling stations :-)

Replying To ArmaghCat:  "Defence forces and Garda wont tolerate ???? Sounds just like the Blueshirts and their facist approach when FF first came to power.....its called democracy and you will need to get used to it ....."
An Armagh man. When you come down here and kill unarmed Gardaí, do you need to go to your local SF rep before going to the law enforcement? You think Gardaí down here want to share a country with that kind of culture and be gunned by "Gaels" from Armagh? And SF barely recognize OnahE as the legitimate defence forces of the state.

Replying To Saynothing:  "I'd expect nothing less from a Royal"
Royal comes from the fact that high kings of Ireland were based there, but I wouldn't expect you to know much about Irish history. Naturally we immediately infer the British royal family, which makes sense to be fair.

Meath are poor at the moment but improving, although we were division one this year they are more realistically a team ranked from 8-14 in the country. Not good enough for division 1, and too good for division 3.

Hard to see the championship being played in this conditions but hopefully it brings some sort of buzz to the country."
Happy to keep the politics out of the forum but won't be told by people who don't even reside in this jurisdiction or can vote here how murderers and criminals are going to run my country in the future.

If it talks like a Royal then it probably is one. I'm assuming your knowledge of Irish history doesn't extend to the six counties because you consider that part of Britain. It explains your ignorance pretty well at least.

why are all game not at same time on Sunday in League !. If Mayo are beaten by Galway, them the Donegal Tyrone game will have no meaning and second teams will be put out as they meet again in the Championship in a few weeks, if two games were played at same time , we would have two cracking games.

No one is going to tell you who is going to run the country. We live in a democracy. The people of 'your' country will tell you.

If Sinn Féin get enough votes to form a government then they will do just that. It is probably going to happen at some stage. The Gardaí or the Defence Forces will do nothing about it thankfully as we live in a democracy. Judging by the results of the last election I'd wager that plenty of Gardaí probably actually voted SF too.

The world isn't as black and white as you perceive it to be. You need to learn to live in the grey.

You 'won't be told' by people who don't live in 26 of the 32 counties. You were told, you just disagree and find their prediction unpalatable.

I love the way these anti SF heads are still calling Sinn Fein ''SF/IRA".

Might as well start saying FF/IRA & FG/IRA. Cause every major party on this island was affiliated to the IRA at one point.

Born from the gun!!!

But i suppose that doesn't count. Sure wasn't that the ''good owl IRA''. ''Sure didn't they gain our independence from British rule and finally after 800 years we we're no longer viewed as 2nd class citizens. Sure who gives a f**K how they ruthlessly & violently went about gaining this independence? Sure we're better off because of it. Tough sh*t for our brothers and sisters up north''

Penultimate rounds have never worked like that.

I know exactly where the Royal name comes from, I'm on about him behaving like a Royal.

Well the connections are still there for SF/IRA in fairness, I think the other crowds have moved on at this stage.

But who gives a single F about FF or FG, you're only picking your favourite colour when you go into a polling station anyway, it's the illusion of choice.

Yes all were affiliated at one point but when most of the other parties were the island was a very different place and SF have/had been involved with IRA in the very recent past and current members of the leadership of SF have

My family have significant links to An Garda....indeed where among its first members ....this is a GAA forum yet you have been given free rein for some reason to spout widely inaccurate and dangerous comments about not only political parties but people based simply on what part of the island they live on....
As said before its interesting the vast majority of people making these statements are from Meath....
