Lo criticises Wells over GAA fundraising comments

Alliance Culture, Arts and Leisure Spokesperson Anna Lo MLA has criticised comments from DUP MLA Jim Wells, after he called for a halt to GAA clubs raising funds by packing bags in South Down supermarkets.

Anna Lo MLA said: “This is a very churlish and negative call from Jim Wells and I am annoyed at his comments.

“The GAA is a sporting organisation that does much work in the community and has every right to raise money at supermarkets like other sporting organisations and charities do.

“I think that Jim should be asking himself what comments like this do as regards community relations here. We need to build the shared future that Northern Ireland deserves and these remarks are not in any way helpful.”
