‘Micro vigil’

Newry Republican turns a cynical eye to the vigil called in opposition to the bombing of the city’s courthouse.

This irrelevant micro-group had every right to peacefully protest on Friday night but it seems the call for people to come out in force was ignored.

He notes a turnout of around 20, the BBC put numbers at 30 while UTV declared 100.

Adds: as a comparative this protest in support of republican prisoners in Newry in December seems to have attracted similar numbers or perhaps more people.

Further addendum: looking at the prisoner protest I can see a considerable number of people not from the Newry area.
