Trimble regrets 'pathetic' remark

But apparently none of the rest of his attack on the Republic of Ireland at a meeting of the UUC last March. In fact he’s gone one better:

“If you took away Catholicism and anti-Britishness, the state [Republic of Ireland] doesn`t have a reason to exist”

Though many took great affront at the original remark, it also had some humorous spin-offs: here and here.

Update: Local reaction to the renewed insult.
