Four masked men boarded the double-decker in Church Road at an entrance to the Rathcoole estate just before 8pm on Sunday. It follows a similar attack last Monday.

The driver and passengers were ordered off the bus, which was then set alight.

It comes after a bus was hijacked and burned in a loyalist area of Newtownards, Co Down, last Monday in an apparent protest against the Northern Ireland Protocol.

Luckily nobody was seriously injured and i hope authorities apprehend the terrorist scum before they manage to escalate the situation even further which is exactly the intension with their stupid dangerous games.

Fourth time this year this kind of crap has happened over there and to what end, people not being able to get to work or attend hospital appointments.


This nation needs a return to problems in Northern Ireland like it does a hole in the head.

Really wanna giver their heads a wobble.

That's the first question that popped in my mind when I read the title. I was hoping to read something like that↑.


I don't know anything about what's going on over there, but it doesn't seem to make much sense to attack the public transit system when their issue is about the strict border trade protocol or whatever.

Not the sharpest tools in the shed i suppose.

I can only imagine what the poor bus done.

Aside from possibly take them to school the next day.

I think it's clear that they do all the same along with a swift kick to the ging gang goolies for good measure.

Makes a lot of sense, stop the traffic stop the trade!

What are they angry about again?

On a serious note this is almost certainly disenfranchised youth, the old factions are practically dead or evolved that said neither side want any resemblance of a hard Irish border and frankly the numpties at the helm need to sort it out and quit pissing about with people's livelihoods.

Maybe it was a global warming protest?

Lets face it the wanna be terrorist scum are nothing more than clown shoes.

And your probably correct, they could not lace there fathers boots(grand fathers), which is probably a good thing i suppose.

Considering the atrocities that took place back in the 70s and 80s with cars pubs and hotels blown up at all angles.

Thing is its where crap like this can lead and escalate towards given the nature and history of the place.

Totally agree neither side wish to see any real semblance of a hard border and that numpties at the helm are playing around with peoples life and livelihood.

It seems to be a warning on the Northern Ireland "protocol" which I guess would be the vaccine rollouts. They are hitting infrastructure as a warning to the Government.

Mate its Northern Ireland, trust me when i tell you a few busses each year would hardly constitute them hitting infrastructure in a similar manner to decades past.

That's like a drop in the ocean compared to what's been burned out blown up and destroyed over there as tragic as the past may be.

And as far as i can establish this don't have much to do with vaccinations, more to do with hard borders and Brexit debacles.

How workable is it for Northern Ireland to be part of Brexit, with the rest of the island part of the EU? Can that work without a hard border?

Are loyalists loyal to the UK, or a united Ireland?

I can tell you all again, there has never ever been a hard border between Southern Ireland and Northern Ireland. Checkpoints on the major road, yes. But do you all realise all the little byways and lanes that crisscross the border that has no oversight.

A hard border is not workable, tenable nor enforceable solution put it that way.

No side wishes to see a hard border loyalists or republican if they are honest.

It will need to work without a hard border unless they wish to build a big wall and patrol the place constantly.

People wont want that ile tell you that right now no matter the side they are on.

We have a sordid history with Ireland and my sympathies go both ways on our shared history, that said I was a little young when that agreement came about.

I agree about potential outcomes of a hard border, all sides still have the capacity to bring terror to these isles and there's plenty of evidence to say theirs still elements of activity although I'd question the organisation behind said groups like the IRA or Ulster. Hopefully those days are truly buried.

A hard border could change that.

Still dont have an answer to my question, who are the loyalists loyal to, UK or a united Ireland?

Andy somewhat answered your question indirectly.

Ultimately they're loyal to the crown and believe in a northern Ireland that is seperate from Ireland and loyal to the British government.

Look up Ulster and Irish unionism if you're interested. English control of Ireland goes back nearly 1000 years... Which says nothing to the vast diversity of Britain before we argued over which flavour of Christ tastes best.

Sorry pal i thought you would understand that the "loyalists" would be "loyal" to the UK.

Whereas the republicans wish to see independent Ireland.

Like i suggest all the same none of the above wish to see a hard border that will split the nation and cause endless problems that can somewhat materialise in to full blown riots at the drop of a hat should ether side fell the need to display a show of force.

Pretty much agree there.

Hopefully those days are indeed truly buried.

I hope this aint a regular thing as my nephew drives a Belfast bus. I'll have to get in touch with him to see if he's alright. It wasn't him though as he's off work at the moment with a bad back.
