In another slow newsday story, Jo Duffy on RTE this afternoon lifted the lid on a FAS leaflet doing the rounds of the EU, which apparently has a map in which the most of Donegal north of Letterkenny (don’t panic Damien) is annexed by Northern Ireland. We haven’t seen said offending article, but it won’t be the first time someone in Dublin has forgot to keep the bit of the south that’s north of the north where it belongs. Cecilia Keavney joked once about being the MP for Inishowen when it was geopolitical shifted to the East, by some insensitive Jackeen of a cartographer.
