One for the new DCAL Minister

Loyalists in Coleraine have picketed against the decision of the majority-unionist council to hold a civic reception for a local GAA club, Eoghan Rua, who progressed to the final of the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Championship. The Ulster Unionist Mayor of Coleraine, William King, condemned the protesters, whose picket forced the players to enter through a side door.
The picket highlights the continuing demonisation of the GAA within some elements in society in the north. No doubt future DCAL DUP Minister (Donaldson/Foster?) will want to be seen to build bridges with the membership of the largest sporting organisation in the north- and across the country as a whole- in the time to come, ahead of his/ her attendance at the All-Ireland Final at Croker this year, of course.
