Cant see the threat by Scotland coming to much. But then again if the Irish government did anything sensible to help their own fishermen it will be a first. Let's hope it doesn't come to our leaders to look for a compromise.

We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in Rockall, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our unihabitable piece of granite rock, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds (but there are no landing grounds), we shall fight in the fields and in the streets (of which, none), we shall fight in the hills (neither); we shall never surrender (but why?)

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.
Most Scots hate us

I suggest we take a number of our most passionate, and boring, barstool Republicans from this forum and place them on Rockall so they can defend Ireland from the imperialistic swagger of the Scots.

Each will be provided with an air rifle, a book of Pádraic Pearse poetry, and a biscuit tin of ham sandwiches.

No offence lads, but you're not a real country and it's not a real government, so just go away will ya.

Maybe if they ask their (soon to be) new leader Boris nicely, he might give the issue a mention while he's giving away their fishing rights in return for a few crumbs from the EU table after Brexit.
That would be a rather foolish assumption. If the Scottish Government asks the British to enforce perceived fishing rights, they will be only too happy to, as it would be a nice political arrangement that would eminently suit both parties.

The Scots are not independent and therefore cannot set their own policy's much.
It is a smoke screen devised by Whitehall. Their shambles political establishment has been exposed for all to see, the emperors new clothes to say. They are leaderless, rudderless, adrift with no moral compass to guide, only some far right myth based on hatred, contempt and the glory of a past soaked in blood, balanced on the misery of countless voiceless souls.
Every now and then some fool, whom believes he controls the sea, plops a union jack upon that rock and claims it. They could always stick a nice base there for a few billion with shiny rockets and marching men to protect.
Smash and grab lads, we will defend the seas inalienable right to be free of the pillaging claims of men.

Don't forget the pints of Guinness to keep their motivation up...and the Wolf Tone's music blaring in the background

SNP . Scotland No Pope must be going back to their roots .

Scotland = A “ Country “ that would not Vote itself a Country when given the Chance = Not a Country .

They also still have more than their share of Orange Bigots .

24 miles?

If the radius is 12 miles, then the area is 144 pi, approx 450 miles sq.

Perceptive comment. The Dublin government will do little for Irish interests, especially anything that doesn't effect the Dublin economy or the livelihood of people outside Dublin.
