Fleadh regrets offence caused by sectarian statement

By Staff Reporter

The chair of the Ardoyne Fleadh committee Eddie Copeland today said it regrets any offence caused by a sectarian comment made at a concert on Sunday night.

 Eddie Copeland said: “We regret any offence caused by this incident. “It was wrong, regrettable, disappointing and should not have happened.

“These comments do not reflect the views of the organisers of the Ardoyne Fleadh or the people of Ardoyne.

 “The Ardoyne Fleadh is about community participation. This year’s Fleadh programme included six days of community events involving thousands of local people and it’s our aim to make the Fleadh bigger and better in coming years.

 “The organising committee of the Fleadh will be reviewing our guidelines in relation to performers and acts to ensure that this does not happen again.”
