Why not? As far as I know we never actually left the Commonwealth.
We're not a member based on some technicality to do with being a Republic.
Easily fixed.

perfect opening event for the new Casement Park in Belfast

btw theyve subitted a revised/smaller planning application for that, think 32k rather than 40k so hopefully that gets the go ahead

We definitely left the Commonwealth.

International sporting tournaments are quite often looking less attractive these days. CIties that have allowed citizen involvement have recently seen Olympic bids turned down by the citizens. Because: scam.

We de facto left the commonwealth in 1936 and de jure in 1948. We actually left it twice!

Read up on it after I posted.
A reversal wouldn't be too difficult.

Sure. And England and Wales could leave the UK. Which would make things much simpler for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Lot to recommend it. Apart from the it's completely mental and never happening thing. Other than that though...

And you think that one will pass ? Numbers down a few thousand but the access and emergency exit problems still exist. Access point is through main corporate area so if there was a fire in that there is no exit strategy in place as it is the only side with street access.
The whole thing is a farce and the GAA won't accept an alternative site which has been offered.

Dreadful, dreadful ground. Everything about the ground has always been a pain in the hole, everything about getting there, watching a game there, the people who run it, getting out of it, everything. I'd rather watch Linfield play Rangers in Windsor Park wearing a 'king billy f%~ks kiddies' t-shirt than ever set foot in that kip again.

Thought the reason given was to preserve the history of the ground ?
Interesting to know what was actually meant by that.

I know it's Robert Kitson but it's good to see there's some foreign support for the 2023 bid.
