Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week December 4, 2016

1. Joe - December 5, 2016

“Everyone under 21 is fluent and an increasing number of the older ones use their native tongue.”

The above from Joe Brolly on the Slaughtneil area of Co.Derry. I don’t believe him.
But whatever about speaking Irish, they ain’t half bad at our ‘national’ games – winners of the Ulster Championship in football, hurling and camogie.

Anyway the bould Joe’s column is well worth a read. Joe wants continuity in the practice of flying the tricolour and singing the national anthem at GAA grounds. He has no time for the backsliding president of the GAA, an t-Uasal Ó Fearghail, who dared to suggest that the GAA might be open to discussing changing these practices if and when there’s a ‘new dispensation’ on the island. Joe has a go at Jarlath Burns too for being in the backslider camp.

Not saying in any of this that Joe’s column or any line in it is stupid. It’s an interesting read is all.
