Orange Order To Meet Tyrone GAA To Explain Why No Tyrone Flags On Bonfires
In what has been described as ‘another kick in the nuts in 2022’, Tyrone GAA have requested a meeting with the Orange Order to clarify why Tyrone flags were absent from their bonfires this year.
The 11th night bonfires, which are usually adorned with items of hate by the builders, are often an accurate gauge of successes within the nationalist communities from sport and politics to religion and music.
A Garvaghey spokesman explained his disbelief at the insult caused by the lack of Tyrone flags on the hate pyres:
I think this is a wake-up call for all associated with Tyrone GAA. There were even Derry flags and Armagh flags on the bonfires in Tyrone. It was humiliating. The Orange Order hate nearly everything but not us this year it seems. It’s like we’re irrelevant.
It is expected that pictures of this year’s bonfires will be pinned to the changing rooms for the first collective training session for next season by Dooher and Logan.
Meanwhile, archeologists have unearthed fossils which indicate that there were traffic wardens in Coalisland over 1000 years ago.
