again, I don't want to hijack a thread.

but....... my position on the billy boys has nothing to do with a republican band playing in Dubai in a pub which I quite liked???

secondly, I've grown up. yes, I have sung the billy boys numerous times (as have 99% of rangers fans) but times have moved on (although I have still sang it) . I still don't know what that has to do with a band singing about killing british soldiers in Dubai though????

this line for start

"We're up to our knees in fenian blood
Surrender or you'll die"

taking a stance is good, abhorring sectarian shite is good, being selective about boycotting when it suits you, not so much.

Actually I agree, kind of. It's not as if there is a stereotypical loyalist bar in Dubai that flies in some proddy band to play the billy boys and there lies a soldier etc etc. Sure biggles used to though lol..

Come on guys, surely with the peace & reconciliation process firmly in place and the 'troubles' behind us we can start forgetting all of this childish sectarian nonsense.

I'm sure you would and I'm sure others wouldn't.

I see the Irish like I see the Welsh / Scottish. Perfect for some bants, but tougher to dislike than the Welsh.

Most of my generation and anyone younger would vote against, its only the older generation who have some misty eyed notion of a united Ireland.

Can you imagine having to deal with all the shit that goes on up there, we would probably get reverse terrorism in Dublin from loyalists looking to split again.

I don't mind the scots and the welsh too much, and even the english are ok from time to time
