I live in southern Ireland and yes this is a worrying development for our island.
Next Saturday 13th January the self same loyalists are planning to march through Dublin to make a symbolic/provocative protest to the centre of
government to highlight their concerns.
Trust me this will be covered by world media.
What you are seeing isn't a political manifestation of a viewpoint regarding flags but the excuse for a disenfranchised youth (some of the rioters are
under the age of twelve) to vent frustration against TPTB. it is draped in flags and religious overtones but at the core is a section of society who
will take any opportunity to riot and vent frustration against anyone who they confront.
Have a look what Irish people think on
Northern Ireland, despite the advances and political achievements of the past decade still sits steeped in bitterness and bloodshed and has a
wellspring of young people who can be manipulated by the 'old men' to cause chaos at the drop of a hat. Trust me, In Northern Ireland Rioting is
considered a national sport and both police and rioters are old hands at it.

It points to a deeper malise within Irish society and is merely fueled by flags and so called culture.
Keep an eye on Dublin on Saturday ATS, hopefully our under manned and ill equipped Gardai (police) will keep the peace.
