Tricolour is flag of alien nation

As a frequent visitor to Northern Ireland, I was disgusted to find out it is almost impossible in airports or ferry terminals to buy goods bearing either the Union flag, the Red Hand of Ulster or the Cross of St Patrick.

It is very easy to purchase goods bearing the Eire tricolour, the flag of an alien and hostile nation.

What is unacceptable is the desire to sell and fly the flag of an alien nation, which has proved to be a place of refuge to sworn enemies of Northern Ireland. If these people wish to live under the tricolour, why not move there?
