That is not true, Gabriel.  The law banning the tricolour was lifted
several years ago.  From where I sitting right now (in West Belfast) I
can see dozens of perfectly legal Irish flags.  Your support for the
struggle against the anachronism of British involvement in Ulster is
appreciated, Gabriel, but if you are going to make any 'factual' remarks
about Ireland, would you run them by me first?
