I added an asterik to the NI airports. Technically they shouldn't even be in this template, as they're not Irish, they're British. Depending on your view of NI that is, but as it stands, they are both politically British.
In my opinion they should be removed completly, but I can see them being very quickly added back in. Discuss please. --Dom0803 22:40, 31 August 2006 (UTC)
Agreed- they should be removed as they are already on the UK template Astrotrain 11:49, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Well I disagree the template is useful to show all airports in Ireland, it is non-political.--padraig 11:55, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
Airports in the Irish Republic are actually owned by the government Astrotrain 17:04, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
And the IAA also hold shares in many British Airports, so what is your point.--padraig 17:06, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
I editted because they are Airports in Ireland. They are divided under "Republic of Ireland" and "Northern Ireland" below the title. Whats the problem exactly?Derry Boi 22:54, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
Because technically ROI & NI are in two separate countries within the Island of Ireland. If I wanted to be petty I could have taken out the NI airports and claimed NI has nothing to do with Ireland however I was being pragmatic about it. Conypiece 22:59, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
You mean if you wanted to be incorrect, not petty. NI has everything to do with Ireland. Remember Ireland was partitioned, the six counties weren't taken away from Ireland. Ireland on WP (and everywhere else) is the island, all 32 counties. All the airports listed are in Ireland, therefore there is every reason why all the airports should be in the template. The airports from the 6C and 32C are listed separately in the template with the terms "Republic of Ireland" and "Northern Ireland" beside them, theres no need to repeat those terms in the title. "Ireland" is a better description of the island than "Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland". Derry Boi 23:54, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
However Ireland is in a unique position, for it has got 2 entirely seperate countries within the island, one using the name Ireland and the other not. You see my point? This is a fairly simple point. It was being pragmatic. Also NI airports are mentioned within the UK template, therefore they are not needed on this one. The UK template is not done geographically, it is done constitutionally. Therefore there is good cause for NI airports to be taken out of this template, however things should stay as they are for the time being. Conypiece 00:10, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
There is equally valid reasons for taking the 6C airports out of the UK template as there is to take them out of the Ireland one. But the argument isn't whether or not their in the template, it's about what to call it. Simply put "Ireland" is a better description of the island than "Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland".

There is equally valid reasons for taking the 6C airports out of the UK template as there is to take them out of the Ireland one. Err no theres not. Actually the more you dicuss this the more obvious it becomes that the NI airports do not need to be in this template as they are being done constitutionally. Conypiece 00:33, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
Clearly the airports in NI need to be associated with both templates. Geographically, airports in the rest of Ireland are of much greater relevance to Northern Ireland than airports in GB. Also - in Wikipedia terms, Ireland refers to the entire Ireland, so this information should follow the same policy. Aaronsc 12:37, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
Domer, two constitutional areas. Are you having fun with your wee stalking thing at the minute? I am, you should really try to make it harder though. Conypiece 14:08, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Please leave the template alone, with the title "Ireland". Senseless politicking about this is one of the most tiresome things about Ireland the Wikipedia. It's a list. "Constitutionality" has nothing to do with it. -- Evertype·✆ 17:25, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
