One would hope that the Irish people instead of wasting energy protesting this State Visit would totally ignore it. No crowds in the streets, no persons at Croke Park, no protests, just make the whole thing a non-event.
Now one learns the Irish Government is copying the tactics of the RUC thugs and are in fact borrowing their equipment bringing in crowd suppression vans from British Northern Ireland for use by the Irish Garda Siochána - putting them in an unenviable position.
If the Irish people completely ignore this visit it will make the Irish Government look completely foolish and highlight the ignorance displayed by them in organising this inappropriate and illegal State Visit by an English monarch to the non-Commonwealth Republic of Ireland.
