An un-KAI-nee coincidence?

The prominent display of the letters ‘KAI’ on the drums of a loyalist flute band participating in a contentious Orange Order parade near the Short Strand on Saturday has made the front page of the Andersonstown News. The Rathcoole KAI (Kill All Irish) were a notorious loyalist tartan gang which operated in the loyalist Rathcoole area during the 1970s. However, an Orange Order spokesman has insisted that the ‘KAI’ lettering is a reference to the Danish footballer, Kai Johansen, who played for Glasgow Rangers during the 1960s/ early 1970s.
