Whats in a name?
“Doire”. “Derry”. “Londonderry”.
Gerry Aderson of course was being ironic. Referencing “Derry Stroke Londonderry” to highlight the obsessionally nationalist and unionist sensitivities.
Over a year ago, the term “Derry Londonderry” started to be used as a kinda letsgetalongist neutrality.
I predicted (and for once I was right) that it would enter the mainstream and it has….”Derry Londonderry” is now a staple on news programmes.
I cant see Derry GAA rushing to change its name.
And I dont think nationalists should be using the term. Its SHYTE.
To highlight this absurdity, I urge you to start tweeting Hashtag “Derry Stroke Derry”.
