    For the first time since the Irish Republic was freed from British occupation in 1916 a British Monarch will visit Ireland next week. Should we fly the flag or build the scaffold?

      I heard about the upcoming visit. What's the purpose?

    It’s almost a hundred years since then. Might the long delay by the British monarch to visit Ireland have been due to disagreement over the six northern ‘Irish’ counties?

    I guess there will be the usual melange of celebration and protest.

    me, I just like to see what hat she is wearing.  I like her hats.  I have no idea why.
