Row Erupts Between DUP and Sinn Fein Over Colour Of Golf Flags At Irish Open

2000px-Orange_flag_wavingFour local politicians were said to be ‘slapping the heads off each other’ on Portstewart Strand after DUP member Myles Forsyth claimed there were more green flags than orange at the holes during the second round of the Irish Open.

Golfing officials moved quickly to deny the allegation, stating that they don’t often get the chance to use green flags as it normally blended in with the colour of the grass but, due to the high volume of yellowy sand dunes, they decided to roll with it.

Forsyth remained unconvinced:

“I’m not buying it. They’re trying to eat into east of the Bann with this stunt. It’s no coincidence that holes 1, 9 and 16 had green flags. 1916. The golfing fraternity appears to be riddled with republicans and, even worse, catholics.”

Officers had to be called to the Portstewart Strand beach after a scuffle between minor DUP and SF members resulted in bare knuckle boxing between four politicians over the flag colour affair. The fight reportedly began when a Sinn Fein member shouted ‘I’ll chucky this sand into yer face’.

Meanwhile, a rumour that all NI golfers who failed to make the cut did so in order to get drinks in before the 12th has been ridiculed by Rory McIlroy’s PA James Nesbitt.

“since our apparitions, the part of us which appears, are so momentary compared with the other, the unseen part of us, which spreads wide, the unseen might survive, be recovered somehow attached to this person or that, or even haunting certain places, after death. Perhaps - perhaps.”
