We don't condone video, insists garage

By Claire O'Boyle

The Omagh garage caught up in the Barry McElduff furore has issued a statement to distance itself from his controversial Twitter video.

McCullagh's Classic Service Station was embroiled in the row after the Sinn Fein MP revealed he had filmed himself with a loaf of Kingsmill bread on his head there, before posting the video online on the anniversary of the IRA massacre.

A spokesperson said: "We would like to clarify the video was not sanctioned or authorised by our management to be filmed on our premises.

"We were not responsible for the content in the video. McCullagh's absolutely do not condone anything which may cause offence to anyone.

"We are a local family-run business and we have been blessed with the support and countless friendships from all sections of the community in which we serve over this past 25 years."

A source at Kingsmill bread said the company wouldn't condone the use of the brand in any kind of insensitive manner.
