Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Protest planned for Israeli function at international soccer match

16 August, 2010

Wicklow Sinn Féin Councillors John Brady and Rossa Murray have announced that they will attend a function organised by the Israeli Embassy wearing Palestinian International Soccer shirts to highlight Israel’s hypocrisy in supporting international soccer while denying the right of Palestine to play international matches.

Councillors Brady and Murray have been invited to the function hosted by the Israeli Embassy which is due to take place in the Royal Hotel ahead of an international ladies match between Ireland and Israel on Wednesday 25th August at 6pm. The match takes place at the Carlisle Grounds in Bray at 7.30pm.

A protest will take place at the Royal Hotel at 6pm and at the Carlisle Grounds at 7.30pm on the day.

Speaking ahead of the protests Councillor Brady said, “Both myself and my colleague Councillor Murray will be attending this function with the sole purpose of highlighting Israel’s hypocrisy and their ongoing crimes against the Palestinian people.” ENDS
