South Belfast's MP, MLA and practising Family Doctor Alasdair McDonnell has asked the GAA why the allowed Sunday's National Hunger Strike Commemoration to take place on one of their grounds.
I think it's always important to remember this story (one which the 'mainstream' media were inclined to ignore http://www.belfastmedia.com/home_article.php?ID=1701 ) when dealing with Alasdair.
I wonder would Alasdair, or indeed anyone else in the SDLP, take issue with these examples of GAA facilities being used for party political purposes or is it simply when Republicans wish to remember Ireland's Patriot Dead, does a problem arise???
