Both the Micks and the Jocks should phuck off.

Rockall belongs to the Seagulls who have inhabited it for thousands of years.

If we just blow up Rockall so it's not visible at low water it will solve the whole problem.

In this case, we are the ones who wear the trousers.

Fishing rights/administration for Scotland has been devolved to the Scottish Government by the British Parliament.

Scotland is one of the most sectarian countries in the world.

- There's certain loyalist Scottish elements that can be the most anti Irish and sectarian when they start.

The clueless out of touch Dublin government need to wakey wakey on this one.

Who owns Rockall?

There was a deranged Englishman who landed on the rock a good few years ago and claimed it for the U.K.

So who has jurisdiction over Rockall?

Clueless.... Out of touch.

We have had a policy in Ireland of not recognising their claim over the rock for decades.

We cite international and European fishing agreements and water rights all the time.

We are well versed in Scottish politics.

What clueless part are you referring to or was this another clueless post of supposed understanding of the Irish position.?

Britain (now devolved to Scotland) claims jurisdiction, Ireland doesn't, but claims it's international waters.

Totally mad to try and claim 24 miles or so of the sea. Bang out of order in my opinion. I've seen UK / Spanish and French boats off the South Coast, I fully expect us to threaten to police our 12 mile limit if the Scottish think the can police somewhere they don't even officially own.

I'd just like to draw your respective attention to the Turbot War.
Ourselves, Canada and the UK nearly went to war against Spain and Germany in 1995 , fcukin' '95.
You couldn't make this **** up.

The Turbot War (known in Spain as Guerra del Fletán) was an international fishing dispute between Canada (with popular support from the United Kingdom and Ireland) and Spain (supported by the European Union and Iceland).

It's well worth a "Google ".

Oh and **** you Scotland.
