Shame on UTV and other media sources who failed to report the incidents from Solitude.....no wonder Unionists believe the media to be biased.

Reds man in Solitude wrote (770 days ago):
To all the faux offended, asking nationalist to give a minutes silence to honour people who inflicted so much on them, is in itself offensive. The reds fans sang a song about Aiden McAnespie, a young man shot dead by British army. I thought this was a dignified way to protest
