This spider was found in the north of the island, visiting an Orange Museum.
It was also spotted in the Armagh birthplace of the Orange Order.
On first inspection it looked dangerous.
Bite: Mild to severe, nausea, sweating, local pain, swelling and possible infection
Donegal councillor Mr Mac Giolla Easbuigis was one of the first to exhibit a reaction.
He is not best pleased HRH the Prince of Wales and consort have come to stay
“Who invited the pair here and why are Donegal County Council hosting them when there has been no discussion with councillors and a vote was not taken on the matter? Indeed the Council refused to confirm the visit to me when I asked about it last week too.“
Answer”The visit to the Republic of Ireland is at the request of the UK Government“ .
Queries: So why isn’t the UK government covering the expenses for their HRH?
Or why don’t their HRHs pay for themselves, like any other tourists?
Query: Scrounger Charlie?
After 20 minutes exposure to the Black Spider,
a rather unhappy-looking Republican Sinn Fein Deputy First Minister, Mr Martin McGuinness, former IRA leader, announced
1) “I will be visiting Flanders Fields and the Somme next week .”
2) the SF ministers in the new Stormont Executive.
“Michelle O’Neill, Megan Fearon, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir and Chris Hazzard will be taking up the Executive posts”.
He said the matter of the new Justice Minister ‘would be resolved to his satisfaction.’
Comment: 4 Nationalist and 4 Unionist ministers. But in the present Stormont Assembly SF are entitled to only 3 ministers excluding the Deputy First Minister. If Alliance doesn’t take an Executive seat, DUP get a fifth ministry.
Query: Could our Marty become Justice Minister?
Answer: No. No Nationalist/Republican need apply
DUP leader Arlene Foster has already announced they were all “rogues and renegades” and
“We will not be supporting a Sinn Féin Justice Minister, we’re very clear about that”
She has also blocked plans by the Lord Chief Justice for dealing with 50 legacy inquest cases
Remember: The Black Spider letters?
By meddling in government the heir to the throne tainted the supposed “neutrality” of the UK Monarchy
Can he really be an activist king without imperilling the monarchy itself?
