Default Derry or Londonderry

A BBC Radio Ulster News report last night gave a Derry GAA result as Londonderry. Just felt it was obvious antagonization of the nationalists of Derry. Everybody interested in a GAA result would refer to Derry as "Derry". No need to call it anything else. What are yer thoughts on this? Am I reading too much into it?

Well I suppose as per their jersey they are in fact Doire, not Derry or London Derry, so everybody, bar a few, are getting it wrong.

Cork City fans chant to Derry City supporters at Turners Cross:

“What’s it like to have a Queen?”


Heh heh heh

There are organisations in the maiden city which have "Foyle" as their prefix now rather than "Derry" or "Londonderry".

I couldn't give a toss whether it's called Derry or Londonderry.
It's still a shithole. Just below West Belfast in the shithole league.

WEST Belfast? Hmmm.

Actually Derry is rather a nice spot. Been there as a tourist and there's plenty to see and do. Kind of a mixture of Cork (surrounded by hills) and Limerick (size) and even a bit of Embra (walls and small historical city centre)about it.

It's a bit of a pain in the @rse to get to but I quite like Derry tbh
