Agreed, I don't feel strongly that we should have an Irish flag at EP, but the fact that it is being taken down I do feel strongly about.
I don't like the Conservative party so maybe we shouldn't play in blue anymore? Ridiculous and irrelevant.
Likewise, the Irish flag may have associations with the IRA for some, but clearly in our case there was no intention to fly it for that purpose.
People can add their own negative meaning to it if they wish, but we shouldn't pander to it. If it offends you, you are the problem not the coloured piece of material. To quote Stephen Fry: "It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so f*cking what."
Clearly the flag has been chosen to honour our manager, by removing it we give it a meaning that was never intended and make our club look sh1t in the process.
