 United Irelander: OO issues St Patrick's Day message
I see the Orange Order has laughably issued its first ever St Patrick's Day message saying the festival should be about more than just 'green beer and leprechauns'.

Sadly they continue to ban Catholics from joining the Order and they persist in hanging on to their triumphalist traditions, marching down areas where they are not welcome and sticking two fingers up at the locals.
