Saoradh or love ulster?

I am interested as a NI prod who learns lots on this forum.
Lots of people are on threads saying that Saoradh should not have been allowed to march in Dublin - but they were allowed. Its not that long since a victims group whos family members were murdered by the former Saoradh ie the IRA tried to march through Dublin and were prevented by the locals.
Should i assume that the locals do not have as much anger towards the killers of Lyra as they do against unionists whos friends and family were murdered by the IRA?

The Saoradh march occurred very quickly don' think it was advertised at all compared to the love Ulster one.

They're all clowns. Stick them in the arctic and let them fight it out.

Probably right. As far as a list goes of people who shouldn't be allowed March through our capital, loyalists should be top of it.

The only issue that day was a waste of good masonry on the likes of them.

Are you aware at the front of the Love Ulster march there was a monument to Robert McConnell? Do you know he bombed Dublin for the UVF.

I genuinely wasn't aware of that but i will research it. But lets say it was. my question is still the same . Is that more offensive than the killers of Lyra parading??

Yes. Because they didn't go parade in her front garden.

Funny that, I almost mistook them for a bunch of unionist headbangers led by Willie Frazer.

You should also assume that the locals are on the very rough end of the scale as far as Irish society goes.

Jonny. I see you are on your attempt to get me disciplined again. It is ironic as you have just thanked a comment above that stated that the masonry thrown at the unionists that day was just a waste of masonry. So i trust you'll be in trouble before me
