No one is 'telling'anyone what to do. And I certainly didn't tell anyone what to do in the article. 
It's an opinion piece. People are entitled to print what they want on flags. I personally don't agree with how far it has gone

Live in Clapham, unfortunately have never seen an Irish flag with Clondalkin in black marker on it, do you remember which pub the barman worked in?

I'll ask my Dad what pub it was. I was only 8 at the time so my dad dropped me back to my sisters house after the match and he went out on the beer.

There was our flag up beside the Angela Merkel one in Sopot. Have no problem with this type of writing on the flag but pics of Clinton Morrisons arse and that 'Lets get Langers' one are a bit ridiculous. Actually don't mind that Jonnys got you covered one either Toohey Thumbs Up

Just shows the mentality of some of the fans travelling to France. You find it funny because it was all over social media and it got positive comments? So fcuking what. This is an international football tournament not the European Facebook Championships.

Due to emigration and visa issues I cannot leave Canada to attend the Euros but I certainly don't remember needing a sh1t flag to have fun and bring colour to the place in Yerevan, Skopje, Andorra or Tallinn. As an owner/part owner of a custom flag, I get there's in-house jokes but 99% of the ones going are horrific. My flag is the Rock n'Roll Kids flag. You may not like it but it's somewhat relevant had you been in Yerevan or Skopje. The Richie Sadlier one is very good because it's witty and relevant

Which rock n roll flag is that

What are you on about? I find a lot of them funny because it appeals to my sense of humour. I was just pointing out I'm far from alone.

And who said I need a flag to have fun? I'm not even bringing tricolour over let alone a custom flag. But if I did one, it wouldn't be a necessity for me to enjoy myself.

It's a figure of speech. When that Johnnys got you covered flag did the rounds it got a very positive reception. I didn't see a single bad word said about it.

It was before all the latest ridiculous ones appeared so would explain why the small vocal minority crying about them lately didn't have a problem then.

I doubt you will see many English fans with Blackadder or Peep Show quotes; The Scots didn't arrive in Dublin with Jimmy Krankie banners , nor will the North have many of Uncle Andy, although there will be plenty Incle Andy types waving them!Thousands of years of culture, music, poetry, literature of heroes and warriors and the best we can do is the flag equivalent of sticking a pair of underpants on our heads while belching the national anthem.

Which is where Hoskins and his Christmas jumper analogy proves quite accurate. When on lad comes in to the local with one you just think 'f**king eejit' and get on with it. When the pub is taken over by them you go home until January.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Haha can't remember that part. Was the square in Sopot, definitely the best part of the last Euros was around that area, unreal spot!

Fair play Toohey for coming on here and standing up for yourself! I agree you should bring your flag. I have my flag with the past league of Ireland players on it and I'll definitely be bringing it over with me. I do agree that the fr ted quotes are f**king terrible because they have f**k all relation to the team but at least the Jon Walters one does. I feel mine is very related to the team so f**k all ye haters I'll be carrying my flag to France with me.

Yea and I'm sure it appeals to many others, myself included, but to have some of the crap scrawled across our national flag, at a football tournament is idiotic. If you find it so funny, just watch the Father Ted box set. It'll cost you a whole lot less and you can quote the wise cracks to your hearts content in a French pub.
