On Friday night anti-Republicans called on the people of Newry to come out in force and show their disgust at the recent act of resistance by attending a vigil at Newry Town Hall.
Coincidentally i was driving past the Town Hall on my way home from work at the same time. I was quite amused to see that there were roughly 20 people standing awkwardly in the street.
The media outlets didn't help the embarrassing turnout either, UTV tried to save a bit of face by saying that 100 people turned up while BBC reported that 30 had turned up. Quite a contradiction isn't it?. The news footage that was also shown didn't do them any favours either.
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.
So where were all the outraged decent citizens of Newry?
We'll let people make their own minds up
