Alfie Byrne[edit]

Hey snappy, yes Alfie was a keen admirer of Hitler, Mussolini and Franco. He supported the Franco regime until he died. In the picture, Alfie is the guy with the mayoral chain around his neck. He's very clearly giving the Nazi salute. The picture is of the Blueshirts (their leader Eoin O'Duffy is in the center). The Blueshirts modelled themselves directly on Hitler's Brownshirts. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:25, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

Snappy, a picture of a lord mayor on his knees kissing the Papal Enjoy is not common for this time. Can you cite other example from this period that shows an Irish mayor doing this? Just one?

"Papal Enjoy"?". Not up to me to prove anything, it's your claim, so you prove it with a reference not a picture. Snappy (talk) 18:23, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Snappy, You stated that people on bended knee was not uncommon for that time. That was your assertion. I asked you to prove that assertion, you can't, because it's historically incorrect. It seems to me that for some reason you're embarrassed by the picture of Alfie Byrne on bended knees kissing the Papal Envoy's hand. It's one of the most famous photographs of Alfie Byrne, and there is no harm in having a link to it, it proves the point that Alfie Byrne was ultra-Catholic. Also, why remove the reference to the Irish Christian Front 1936 pamphlet? It's a historical document and evidence of Aflie Bryne's ultra-Catholicism. He was a founding member of the Irish Christian Front.

Why on earth would I be embarrassed by the picture of Alfie Byrne on bended knees? It doesn't prove he was an "ultra-catholic" but a devout one. It can't be that hard to find a written reference. Snappy (talk) 19:33, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

SF MPs[edit]

Snappy, you're in breach of 1:RR at [Category:Sinn Féin MPs]. This is not the first time I've warned you about breaching this rule for Troubles-related articles. Please self-revert (otherwise you risk being blocked again) and rejoin the talk page discussion. Gob Lofa (talk) 18:57, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

It's not Troubles related, and according to you, Michael Collins should be in it. So explain to me, Collins' role in the Troubles. Snappy (talk) 18:59, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
At least half of the people listed in the category were in the Provisional IRA. Gob Lofa (talk) 19:36, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
Was Michael Collins was provo too? How is he connected to the Troubles? Snappy (talk) 19:38, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
I'll happily have that discussion with you after we've sorted this 1:RR breach of yours, which, intentionally or not, you haven't addressed in your response, and is the subject of this section. I take it you accept the Provisional IRA is a subject that is related to the Troubles. Right? Gob Lofa (talk) 19:52, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

Category:Future Elections[edit]

Greetings, I hope you don't mind but I removed the CSD tag you left on Category:Future Elections and instead made it a category redirect to Category:Future elections. That will fix the problem and ensure that it won't get created again in duplication of the other category. RingofSauron (talk) 19:22, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

No problemo. Snappy (talk) 18:54, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
