Long March should not pass Rising Sun Bar

Statement from Sinn Fein Assembly Member for Foyle, Mitchel McLaughlin, calling on the organisers of the long walk to board buses as they pass through Greysteel.

Mr. McLaughlin said:

``The organisers of this so called long march claim that they are not intending to offend anybody. Marching past the Rising Sun Bar in Greysteel is grossly insensitive and offensive. The marchers should voluntarily board buses and pass through Greysteel. They should not march past the Rising Sun Bar.''
