Republic of Ireland

This is so so important

I so rarely see English (or British) feminists talk about the abortion issue in Northern Ireland and how it’s the only country in the U.K. where abortion is still banned, and where women have been arrested by the PSNI recently for purchasing abortion pills online.

Please please please make the Northern Irish abortion ban an electoral issue this general election.

Rainbow celebrations as Australians vote for same-sex marriage
Australians have voted overwhelmingly for same-sex marriage, paving the way for legislation by the end of 2017 and sparking rainbow celebrations on Wednesday, with people wearing wedding dresses and sequined suits and declaring "our love is real".

Almost 80 percent of the country’s eligible voters took part in the survey - a higher voter turnout than Britain’s Brexit vote and Ireland’s same-sex marriage referendum. The result marks a watershed moment for gay rights in Australia, where it was illegal in some states to engage in homosexual activity until 1997.

61.6% YES

38.4% no

One of the most realistic parts of Harry Potter was when Seamus fell out with Harry because he insulted his Mum. You do not under any circumstances come between an Irish man and his Ma. Irish men love their mummies because they feed them spuds and look after them. I have watched friendships die and people get into fist fights over this issue. Wtf were you doing Harry you mad bastard.

IF YOU EVER FEEL LIKE YOU FUCKED UP
  • Austria: I just remembered that one time I fucked up and my army killed 1000 of its own men.
  • America: If you ever feel like you’ve fucked up just remember that Ireland accidentally legalized crystal meth.
  • Republic of Ireland: If you ever feel like you’ve fucked up just remember America knowingly voted in a fascist to lead him

IRISHMEN AND IRISHWOMEN: In the name of God and of the dead generations from which she receives her old tradition of nationhood, Ireland, through us, summons her children to her flag and strikes for her freedom…

attention british wlw!!

i’ve found it can be pretty hard meeting people from the uk on tumblr because so many people are american

it’s especially hard for wlw who want to meet other wlw close to them either for romantic reasons or platonic reasons

i’ve made a blog called the @gay-britain-project specifically for wlw in the uk/republic of ireland to make it easier to make more friends in the lgbt community and maybe find a girlfriend!! (naturally it’s trans inclusive and terf exclusive)

i’d really appreciate it if people could reblog this -regardless of whether you’re uk based- to get the word around!! thank u so much for reading and thank u to anyone who reblogs, i really hope this will be of use to at least some of you!!

bavarian-pretzel  asked:

There is actually a good reason why Germany has green jerseys. The are a ode to Ireland. West Germany's first opponents after World War II were the Republic of Ireland – the only country that would play them at the time. As token of respect, Germany's away strip has been green to this day – representing a united Germany.

THANK YOU FOR THIS ANSWER.

Good Time Coming - my jaunt through some of my #OldPics continues.  Here we have the sign that hangs outside of Doyle’s Pub in Dublin, which, apparently, really struck college-age me, as I seem to have taken several pictures of it… (Dublin, Republic of Ireland) (February 2008)
