Outrage at sinking Titanic bouncy castle
UUP councillor Adrian Watson hit out at Antrim Council for insulting the memory of those who died on the Titanic after they erected a sinking Titanic shaped bouncy castle on their Lough Shore site to commemorate 100 years since the vessel went down.
The event held last Sunday saw children slide down the sinking, angled ship into an inflatable sea – a scene that shocked many visitors to the area.
“People were very upset - and I have to say they have a point," Mr Watson told the Antrim Guardian.
He described the council’s move to erect the bouncy castle as a misjudgement.“People in Northern Ireland have a very strong attachment to the Titanic and this year has seen some remarkable and very moving commemorations.
Sadly Antrim's contribution was a bouncy castle. That says it all really,” he added.
