    serious answer, as part of the on going neutralization program the GAA will have to fly no flegs, reap what you sow...

    I think it should probably be debated by the grass roots and see what they think. The GAA is the volunteers that run it from underage club to intercounty. It should be their decision.

    What neutralization programme?

    Is this some daft analogy you have drawn between the City hall flag issue (an official and public area) and a private orgainsation (the GAA)?

    Please tell me it is. I will enjoy mocking your analogy.

    At the moment the GAA doesn't do it anywhere in the UK



    (Emerald Showgrounds, Ruslip, London, Great Britain)

    Then again in Rossnowlagh Donegal, Republic of Ireland



    If Union flag lovers join the GAA and change it from within as part of a shared identity than fine. Similarly if those in the Orange Order want the Green White and Orange as well as just the Orange in their parades fine. To me you can be both a Gael and a Brit as many Scottish are, and both Orange and Irish as many Southern Irish have claimed.

    With all the attempts of neutrality, if the best they can achieve is the nine county Ulster coat of arms, some in the loyalist community are happy with and the St Patrick's saltire that is still flown from Maynooth respectively than that should be acknowledged.

    At the moment the Sheáin Bhuí Gael and the Orange Hibernian seem to keep a low profile, but to me they are the only group that can change either.

    Until then, laissiez-faire to the GAA having Irish flags, and the Orange Order having their Union flags wherever they may go, and let neither side be provoked by that. The white stands for peace between traditions after all.
