Arlene foster to attend ulster final

She gets plenty of stick for being a unionist and generally coming across as anti-nationlist


But I think she deserves massive credit for attending this (so many boardsies malign the gaa )and hope she receives a good reception

Can't stand the oul trout, but yer on the ball. She has been directly affected by the war, her Da got shot in front of her as a young kid. It won't be easy to for her to stand there cheering on Fermanagh,so we can't deny credit on that front. Very humble and very brave. Relating to the first part of your post, she is anti nationalist. Thing is though, none of her predecessors made the effort of doing similar before. It's progress I suppose, albeit a tiny piece of progress but there ya go. Rome wasn't built in a day.

Why would she be cosying up to the GAA and for what purpose? I'll still be voting DUP at the next election for obvious reasons, not because of she went to some GAA event.

Gonna go out on a guess and say it's for outreach to nationlists??
As when this brexit is done and dusted they'll still have to find away to work together


I doubt we'll see her training u16 camoige or anything soon like....but can't have been easy for her to step foot into clones as could've faced a very hostile environment and noone would've taught less of her if she didn't go

The conflict has been over for 20 years. She was hardly going to experience big hostility. She holds Unionist views, I'm sure most Irish nationalists acknowledge that and aren't gong to cry about it or get hysterical because they disagree with her.

If you were the cynical type, you could easily write this off as just another publicity stunt in the clusterf*ck that is blue politics in the occupied six. As I mentioned above though, she seen her father shot as a child and witnessing something like that sticks on ya. Believe me. Personally, I think she is genuine on this one and should be commended. Anyways it's too nice a day to be chattin politics, so I'm gunna grab meself an orangesoda and cool down.

I get unwarranted erections on public transport, when I'm nearly at my stop I picture Arlene. Saves me having to strategically place a newspaper over my groin.

Unionist views. Pretty obvious to me.
