I wished England's Lionesses every success at the Euros... and was branded a West Brit who had betrayed his Irish stock

The Lionesses after their win

There has been quite a buzz about both Pride and The Pride since last weekend. The Belfast streets were packed with revellers celebrating diversity, equality and inclusion, while Wembley was packed to the rafters as the Lionesses roared their way to victory. Everywhere you looked there seemed to be a party.

It is weekends like that which wedge themselves in the memory bank. The feelgood factor is almost tangible. However, there are always some who are keen to cast a shadow. They live in a world of fear and negativity. It can be as simple as never wanting England to win anything under any circumstances anywhere or as serious as being so misguided you feel the need to belittle and condemn those who are not heterosexual or those who may choose to lead their lives without the shackles imposed by certain elements within a variety of religions.
