Just to reaffarim Rockall is part of Ireland

The Irish Government has fairly strict policies on Mac D restaurants blighting scenic areas, so it may not be too easy to open one up on Rockall

We may however open up a scrap yard for Landrovers as there is plenty of space there, or a tarmac yard or , maybe a halting site for our brothers the Pikeys

Your fecker Irish and Brits have forgot there are more countries making call for Rockall and Iceland surely is one of them as can be found on our Ministry of foreign affair:

"Law of the Sea
Throughout the years, Iceland has taken an active part in international negotiations on the Law of the Sea. Three institutions were established by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, which entered into force on 16 November 1994. One of these institutions is the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf, which has adopted its rules of procedure and scientific and technical guidelines and is now prepared to receive information from coastal states on the limits of the continental shelf extending beyond 200 nautical miles and return its recommendations. According to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, coastal states shall as a rule submit information on the limit of their continental shelf within 10 years from the entry into force of the Convention for the state in question. Iceland's deadline for submitting information to the Commission on Limits of Continental Shelf is therefore the autumn of the year 2004. On the one hand, this involves the continental shelf to the south, i.e. the Reykjanes Ridge and the Hatton Rockall area, and on the other hand the continental shelf to the east, i.e. the so-called Herring Loophole. It is clear that much work lies ahead of schedule in this regard; among other things, the available data on the limits of the Icelandic continental shelf need to be reviewed, new data need to be collected and measures need to be taken to ensure that the data is consistent with the scientific and technical guidelines of the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf.

Four countries, Iceland, Denmark on behalf of the Faeroe Islands, the United Kingdom and Ireland, have claimed continental shelf rights in the Hatton Rockall area. These parties need to reach an agreement on the delimitation of the area between themselves or on declaring the area a joint exploitation area. Also, a conclusion needs to be reached on the determination of the outer limits of the continental shelf taking into account the recommendations of the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf. Iceland feels that it is time to renew consultations between the parties to the Hatton Rockall issue in order to review the position, and on Iceland's initiative bilateral consultations were begun with the United Kingdom in spring og 2000."
