    Default "Irish " fishing vessel detained for fishing in "Irish" territorial waters.

    The skipper of a County Down fishing vessel has appeared in court in the Republic after the Irish naval service detained his boat off the Galway coast.
    So much for the claim that people from Northern Ireland are "just as Irish " as those from the Republic.You can play football for them,but don't be doing any fishing or wanting a vote for the President of "Ireland".

    Is this your way of proving you are not a bigot? Great OP by the way.

    Any thoughts on the fact a "fellow Irish man" was arrested and taken to court for fishing in "Irish" waters?Is he not supposed to be as Irish as someone from Galway?

    County Down is part of the UK as recognised by the majority of Irish people. I believe we had a referendum on our territorial claims to the north.

    where does it say the man was irish or anyone was Irish on the boat? they should have sunk it and rescued the fishermen and the headline would be something like,"Irish navy saves drowning Brits"

    In a statement on Tuesday, the Irish Defence Forces said: "There have been 206 vessels boarded by the naval service in 2013, six warnings were issued and this is the first vessel detained this year."
    So of 206 vessels and 6 warnings the only one the imperialistic Irish oppessors take action against is the prod...
