Feile concert hits entirely wrong note

By Lindy McDowell

Understandably, there have been calls for public funding for the Belfast Feile to be looked at following those shameful scenes of sectarian chanting captured on mobile phone footage of the crowd during a performance by the Wolfe Tones.

But that's not the only thing that needs looked at. Many of those in the audience, on stage and behind the scenes also need to take a good hard look at themselves.

In 2018, is this what passes for showing respect for others? People need to take responsibility for their own conduct. It's pretty clear, looking at the individuals on film, that there wasn't much respect anywhere on display.
