Keywords: Patriotism*, loyalty, family (stifle sob), “minutae”, “the people”
*Note: Although common usage defines patriotism as loyalty towards one country, non-Irish readers should note that when deployed by an FnFer it actually means loyalty towards Fianna Fail (inextricably intertwined with loyalty to leader of Fianna Fail). The confusion arises since Fianna Fail members identify the party and the country as being the same entity. What’s good for FF is good for Ireland and visa versa. An attempt to explain the difference to members will generally be met by total confusion.
