Theft of flags disgraceful - Savage

8 July, 2017 - by Kevin Savage

Sinn Féin Councillor, Kevin Savage, has described the theft of bunting and flags from outside Clann na Banna GAA club in Banbridge as disgraceful.

Cllr Kevin Savage said:

“Clann na Banna, along with thousands of others, are celebrating Down’s upcoming participation in the Ulster Football Final. 

"The theft of the flags and bunting is disgraceful and there are fears that the stolen items will end up being burnt on a loyalist bonfire on the 11th night.

"How one expression of culture can be burnt by another group claiming culture as their motivation is beyond me.

"The theft has been reported to the police and I would urge anyone with influence, including local Unionist politicians, to ensure the stolen property is returned and does not end up being burnt upon an 11th night bonfire."
