Ford annoyed at petty GAA shirt complaints

Alliance Leader David Ford MLA has hit out at the fact that children from a GAA club who were packing bags at Tesco in Antrim were told to remove their GAA shirts and replace them with a plain ones following complaints.

David Ford said: “It is deeply frustrating that a few people showed their pettiness by objecting to the wearing of GAA tops.

“I know from my own experience in Tesco in Antrim that the company likes people to wear t-shirts identifying themselves as they pack bags.

“Given the positive way that the GAA has engaged with the local council and the community I am extremely annoyed at this reaction from some.

“I heard no unionist objections when people stood in silence on the Randalstown Road when they came out to express sympathy at the death of the two soldiers at Massereene Barracks.”
