Former GAA star stands for DUP

Interesting snippet from yesterday’s Sunday Life. Denver Thompson is standing for election in the Blackwater ward for a seat on Dungannon Borough Council. It emerged yesterday that he also once played Gaelic Football for a local side between 1981 and 1984. How the times are they a-changing!
