    Getting out before the 12th

    Getting out before the 12th 10th Jul 17 at 11:02 AM
    I'm new to Ireland and I've just became aware of of the secterian hate rampage on July 12th. I plan to go down to Mayo from the 11th to 16th, is this long enough and will I be safe to return then? The though of my house being destroyed or getting caught up in the violence of the day where I could end up dead terrifies me.

    What is the norm leaving duration in Ireland for this time?

    The money has to come from somewhere. You'll pay for it through your car and house insurance.

    What are people doing building houses on traditional bonfire sites?

    Little-Pengelly added: "The building is fully insured and these repairs will happen."
    Well said Emma. They can just accept the increased premiums.

    Or... how about we just stop them building the monstrosity there? No. Forget it. Can't see Emma turning her back on the UDA support that helped get her elected.

    I was about to write that she'd probably get elected without their endorsement, but I suppose there's nothing to stop someone changing their name to Lundy Burns, and standing for the Bonfires Party. A few hundred votes might be enough to ruin it for her if there was a close run election.

    Didn't she already change her name. Will they let her do it another time?

    Pengelly sounded a bit too different, a bit Cornish?

    The logic around it all baffles me.

    Bonfire going to set building on fire - so we'll spray water on building to try and stop that from happening instead of putting bonfire out.

    I understand the whole not wanting to interfere with "loyalist cultural expression" but at some point common sense should take over!

    Well, indeed, and the sensible action was to avoid a riot.

    The Orange have at least acknowledged the problem with the "Battle not the bottle" campaign and nobody in the Orange is allowed to parade intoxicated.
