Sectarian threats issued against 64-year-old Protestant man involved in community work in the Creggan area

Dissident republicans have issued a sectarian threat against a Protestant man working in Creggan, it’s been claimed.

Sinn Féin Councillor Kevin Campbell has slammed what he described criminal gangs for issuing sectarian threats against a 64-year-old man involved in community work in the Creggan area.

He said: “There is shock in the local community on hearing news of these threats by a dissident grouping against a protestant man doing a day’s work.

“Creggan is a welcoming community and people of this area will not stand for any sort of sectarian or racists threats no matter where they come from.

“This blatant sectarian threat has no place in our city and must be condemned outright.

“The sectarianism, which perpetrates such actions, is a scourge in our society. It is blight on the societal and political landscapes of the North of Ireland.

“Sectarianism is the antithesis of Irish Republicanism.”

He added: “The treat against this man needs to be lifted and those groups at war with the community disbanded.”

Ulster-Scots ‘forgotten in some ways.

I PERSONALLY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT. IN THE NORTH OF IRELAND. OR THE SOUTH OF IRELAND? AND I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFETIME HEARD IT SPOKEN & I’M 52-YEARS-OLD.

This appeared on a North of Ireland Ulster-Scot’s blogging site.
Protest for the Irish Language Act in Belfast City Centre. 

NOW THIS APPEARED ON THE BBC NEWS:

Ulster-Scots is a language which has been part of life here since the first Scots planters arrived in Ulster in the 17th Century.
But more than 400 years on, it has become a sticking point in the Stormont talks.

In response to demands for an Irish Language Act, the UN-Democratic Unionst Party, DUP, Anti Irish, Anti-same-sex marriage, Anti-gay and not forgetting Anti-LGBT Party. Is calling on Ulster Scot’s to recognised in the same way as the Irish Language. 


And they are not joking. Are they having a fucking laugh? 

Bronagh from Holyoaks protesting in Belfast against the DUPs insistince not to recognise Same-Sex marriage.

Maybe just Maybe some Irish speakers would like to purchase this from E.Bay but I doubt it
