Well done! you take issue with somebody saying that Mayo people blame others for their problems, and go on to explain that it's all Dublin's fault. Great stuff. Throw in London, they must have done something wrong sometime probably.
Money for farming, regardless of the quality or efficiency of the industry, while ye feed the cattle on diseased carcases, are then are surprised that they develop strange dieases. Dublin. Money to compensate for fishery losses, while ye ye continue to destroy that industry, as well. Money for every doff of the shoneen cap, yes, and we took it all to Dublin since 1973, and that, of course, caused the 1847 famine. I'll bet it was Dublin that gave ye bad spuds in the first place.
Now we dump our waste in your western rivers and lakes, poison what land is left over after the developers' cash crop of unsustainable houses, by importing pigslurry from the midlands to poor into the waterways after a brief stop on the surface of stinking fields. We starve unfortunate sheep to death on hillsides destroyed by greed, to get more money for nothing. We rip off any idiots that try to holiday in what looks on the map like it just might be a nice place, runthem out if they dare step on the land our forefathers fought for so we could destroy and sell it, and always keep the ould cáipin out just in case there are any few Euros going for nothing. Yes all Dublin's fault. There are no problems getting planning permission, or that sort of thing, in the West, 'cause nobody there can afford to buy or build anything, because Dublin stole the grants and hand-outs that our great patriots like Davitt fought and died for in 1916 or sometime, sure what do dates matter, or places, except Dublin.
Oh and yes, we are going to confiscate the Sam Maguire, and Liam McCarthy, and make Barney Rock the next taoiseach. That'll fix ye.
