Kelly arrest is act of provocation

Jim Gibney sees the arrest of Sean Kelly as ‘an act of provocation’, citing the case that revocation of license was previously used against Johnny Adair and that Kelly is simply not in that league. And still there is no clear answer as to why he over anyone else was lifted after the rioting in Ardoyne. Many, no doubt, will simply make their choices and fill in the empty space.
