Sectarian remarks at Ardoyne Fleadh wrong - McVeigh

26 August, 2014

Sinn Féin councillor Jim McVeigh has described sectarian remarks made at the Ardoyne Fleadh as wrong. 

Councillor McVeigh said; 

"The Ard Eoin Fleadh is a very successful community festival which has been running for many years under often very challenging and difficult circumstances.

“It has attracted thousands of people from the local community and beyond to its open air concerts and to a packed programme of community events.

“There is currently a police investigation ongoing into alleged hate crime at this event.

"Sectarian comments made at this event are wrong. 

“Sectarianism is wrong and it has no place at music or cultural events.”
