Sceala Irish Craic Forum Discussion:     Only One Team in Ireland Republic FAI laugh at 2 county joke

Six counties was never a country or a nation. Today the NI joke is not even 6 counties, 4 counties have a Irish majority.
David Healy (known sectarian bigot flute prankster) thinks he can shame or force Irish footballers to play for a England B team.
David Healy sectarian pranks this pathetic stunt was probably what convinced rangers to sign him.
Healy can't be that naive! even he must know that the vast majority of Irish people will not ever want to be Bri Nylon Brits. Does not matter where the Irish are born, they are still Irish.
David Healy is angry that Irish people are not taking the concept of 2 counties as a nation or country, seriously.
Wake up Healy, you are Irish too, just badly educated in bigotry and ignorance. Healy is from a old Irish surname, no matter what way you spell it.

The Republic of Ireland team has the automatic right to claim anyone who is Irish, no matter where they are born, in any and every part of the Island of Ireland and Islands of, or from eligible births abroad. The FAI national body exists to pro actively scout the best footballers who are eligible to play for Ireland.

The FAI has a job to do and one of its primary tasks is to ensure that all footballers eligible for Ireland are not just actively scouted, but pro actively scouted and engaged.
Bottom line is FCUK the IFA and their joke 2 county team.

FIFA recognizes Irish identity and the total freedom for all eligible to be scouted and engaged for Ireland by the FAI.
David Healy's repetitive insistence would be hilarious if it was not such a sad comment on the NI myth mentality.
First they pretend the six counties is a Province, when it never was. Now the more extreme element want to demand people respect it as a nation and country.
It is not a nation or country and never will be.
David Healy slams those who defect to Republic
By Stuart McKinley
Record goalscorer David Healey delivered a straight-talking message to players who are thinking of turning their backs on Northern Ireland
As Northern Ireland’s record goalscorer David Healy has a history of hitting the target.
And he didn’t miss this time as the striker slammed the defectors who have won caps for Northern Ireland at various levels only to turn their back on the country when decision time on their international career came around.
Healy has accused certain players of abusing the shirt that he himself has played off his back many times in his 86-cap international career.

The row of eligibility criteria — under which Fifa permits Northern Ireland-born players to declare for the Republic of Ireland — has escalated to such an extent that a growing number of players called into senior squad by manager Nigel Worthington have gone on to switch their allegiance.

In the case of one, Adam Barton of Preston North End, he was capped by Northern Ireland before accepting a call-up to the Republic’s under-21 and playing for them.

At the weekend Worthington saw James McClean — who is about to complete a move from Derry City to Sunderland — become the latest to make a decision to switch his international allegiance.

That decision was confirmed on the day that he was due to meet up with the Northern Ireland squad for tomorrow night’s Euro 2012 qualifier at home to the Faroe Islands.

Previously Everton’s Shane Duffy defected after being on the bench for Northern Ireland in a friendly against Italy, while last November Barton was capped against Morocco, before appearing for the Republic’s under-21s four months later.

Derry-born McClean has said that it’s his dream to play for the Republic, yet he appeared for Northern Ireland at under-21 level and was also part of the under-20 team that won the Milk Cup in 2008.

“If you don’t want to come and play for Northern Ireland don’t abuse the shirt, don’t abuse the nation,” said Healy.

“Don’t insult the manger and the IFA by claiming that you want to come and play in a friendly as players have done previously.

“They’ve felt as if they weren’t sure, haven’t decided where they want to play.

“They’ve said ‘can I come and play in a meaningless friendly where it doesn’t matter much, mix among the lads for three or four days and then disappear off the face of the earth and we don’t see them again’.

“Don’t abuse it, don’t abuse the shirt.

“Northern Ireland has always been a place where we’ve prided ourselves on great pride and passion and don’t come and take advantage of our country.

“If you don’t want to play for the north of Ireland and don’t want to have the joy of playing for the north of Ireland don’t come in and abuse the shirt.

“Don’t come in as if you want to play a friendly game and then decide you don’t want to play for us.

“Come in and give the shirt a bit of respect and show the country that you really want to play for us.”

Steve Davis backed up Healy by calling on any players who are considering ditching the north of Ireland to make their intentions clear early — and not after they’ve been called into the squad for a senior international.

“The rule exists and it gives a player a choice,” said Davis.

“It’s obviously a bit unfair on the north of Ireland football when there are people putting the time and the effort into coaching them and trying to bring them through and then at the final hurdle they decide to go elsewhere.

“I think they could do things before it gets to that final hurdle and if people made up their minds at an earlier stage there wouldn’t be so much controversy about it.”

Meanwhile Gareth McAuley wants to ignore those who defect by effectively drawing a line under the eligibility row.

“If someone has to think about playing for the north of Ireland then we aren't interested (in them),” said McAuley.

“We wish them all the best with whatever they want to do, but I don't even think we should talking about it.

“If you don't want to play for us then that shouldn't be getting any press from the players' point of view.”

Irish players have declared for their country, The Republic of Ireland, the vast majortiy will continue to declare for the Republic of Ireland. No matter what part of Ireland or anywhere else they are born.
Because there is only one real football team in Ireland, only one team for the Irish - The Republic of Ireland. The Irish football team.
Only One Team in Ireland. The Republic of Republic.
The Football Association of Ireland
Just say no to the 2 county Bri Nylons Brit England B team.
It is known that the 2 county IFA apply tremendous pressure to teenagers in the North, they try and make children sign up for the England B team, declare themselves as Bri Nylons Brits.
Serves the 2 county joke right when the lads grow up and decide for themselves who and what they really are. Irish and wanting to play for their country called Ireland.
No good Irish would want to play for any 2 county England B Bri Nylon wannabe team.
Very good post from someone born and raised in Belfast.
Irish or Northern Irish. Hypocrites want to deny free will

Only one team in Ireland.

The FAI can and will never accept the claim by the IFA that was some gentlemans agreement was in place to respect any borders anywhere, whether that border is real or not.
The FAI has a job to do and its job is to ensure that all qualified players for Ireland are not just actively scouted, but pro actively scouted and engaged.
Well done to the FAI for telling the joke IFA to go jump.
Court case re Daniel Kearns, Found in favor of player and FAI and Ireland team.
Irish Football Association v/ Football Association of Ireland,
Daniel Kearns and FIFA
Arbitral Award
Rendered by the
Court of Arbitration For Sport
Rejected the IFA sole or automatic claims on Irish players born or connected to NI.
As in the Good Friday agreement.
British can no longer be forced upon Irish people. The British were not giving anything away in the GFA, not a thing that was naturally theirs anyway. The UK can no longer dictate who is British and not Irish, the UK comes under the directive of European law just like Ireland.
FIFA recognizes Irish identity and the total freedom for all eligible to be scouted and engaged for Ireland by the FAI.
Notes from the Court of Arbitration For Sport
For all the reasons already noted, the IFA cannot plausibly argue that Article 16 was drafted in response to the IFA/FAI situation or that this provision should be construed to give effect to the convention between the IFA and the FAI.
Moreover, the alleged contract has never been submitted to the FIFA Executive Committee for approval. Finally, the existence of a “contract implied by conduct” is denied by the FAI, which disputes that it has ever discussed the status of Irish citizens living in Northern Ireland or accepted that Irish citizens could not be selected for its teams, whether living in Northern Ireland or elsewhere.

The Republic of Ireland team has the automatic right to claim anyone who is Irish, no matter where they are born. The FAI exists to pro actively scout the best footballers who are eligible for Ireland.The FAI has a job to do and one of its primary tasks is to ensure that all footballers eligible for Ireland are not just actively scouted, but pro actively scouted and engaged.

Further from the Kearns and FAI v the IFA
90. In any event, the alleged tacit agreement may not be used to defeat the claim of Mr Kearns, who was of course not a party to any such agreement and who, in any event, is entitled to exercise his rights as provided under Article 15 and 18 of the 2009 Application Regulations.

IV.6 Conclusion
91. Based on the above, the Panel finds that the Appealed Decision must be upheld in its entirety, without any modification. This conclusion makes it unnecessary for
the Panel to consider the other requests submitted by the parties. Accordingly, all other prayers for relief are rejected.
92. (...) CAS 2010/A/2071 IFA v. FAI, Kearns & FIFA - Page 27

ON THESE GROUNDS
The Court of Arbitration for Sport rules that:
1. The appeal filed by the Irish Football Association against the decision issued by the Single Judge of the Players’ Status Committee of FIFA on 4 February 2010 is rejected.
2. The decision issued by the Single Judge of the Players’ Status Committee of FIFA on 4 February 2010 is confirmed.

Lausanne, 27 September 2010
Operative part issued on 22 July 2010

Is that Clear enough David Healy?
Good, you can go back to your sectarian jokes now
