Football fans could unite to set example

Published 20/02/2013

Some good may yet come out of last Saturday's nightmare if enough Crusaders fans are prepared to walk down Skegoneill Avenue with the Cliftonville fans on the day of the rearranged match (News, February 18).

What was the unelected mob doing on the Shore Road on Saturday? Trying to start up the Troubles again?

It will represent a defeat for the forces of fascism if large numbers of Cliftonville and Crusaders fans meet at the top of Glandore before walking together down to Seaview. (Same again, in reverse, at the end of the match.)

Here we have a chance to set an example to the whole country. Forget about peace rallies. Be there.
