Monday Madness-Louth's Shame

I was very disappointed to read over at Slugger that Louth museum is hosting a series of events including the Orange themed "Beyond the Boyne" exhibition organised by undergraduates of Dundalk Institute of Technology which has a collection of memorabilia relating to Orange lodges in the Republic as well as some photographs.

This is disgraceful. Why is this sectarian, bigoted and xenophobic organisation being glorified by Louth museum? It's bad enough that the Orange Order likes nothing better than to terrorise and infuriate innocent nationalist residents by shoving their triumphalist attitudes down their throats without us glorifying it! We saw similar plans for OO members to participate in the St.Patrick's Day parade in Cork quite rightly shelved and these plans by Louth museum should be shelved as well.

There is no place for bigotry and sectarianism within Irish society and it's time we stopped tolerating it here in the Republic. Louth museum, you have messed up.
