Derry’s Christmas gifts to the GAA

Discussions in Derry City Council has discussed gifting another GAA club a parcel of seven acres of land, in the Waterside. Unionist councillors estimate that the value of the combined deal would come to £300,000. Gregory Campbell: “Within two weeks, we have two Gaelic clubs, both in Londonderry, both getting effectively free gratis, either land or land at a nominal rent, and other sporting disciplines have major applications in before the council that have not yet been decided upon.”
