Deeney in favour of Maze stadium…

Kieran Deeney has a letter in today’s Newsletter supporting the Maze bid, arguing that Belfast is not Northern Ireland:

It is now about time that this whole mindset is made redundant ie that “Belfast is Northern Ireland” and that everything, and all, should be built or provided in our city. Of our 1.7 million people, 350,000 approximately reside in Belfast (ie just 20.5 per cent of our population) and, therefore, approximately 1,350,000 (or just less than 80 per cent) live outside Belfast.
