It saddens me to see such a shameless display of hostility towards our 
Irish friends. Unless a rule or regulation forbids local chapters from 
covering overlapping geographical areas, I can think of no reason to 
reject this application. In fact I think it makes a lot of sense for one 
organization to cover all of Ireland, first and foremost from a 
geographical point of view. We shouldn't let lines on a map get in the 
way of improving said map.

Kind regards,
