Unionist outcry over Michaella is unnecessary

I HAVE no sympathy for Michaella McCollum. But the level of criticism regarding the decision to repatriate her makes me wonder.

If she was from the Shankill would there be the same level of outcry over the cost to the UK taxpayer to bring her home?

Or is it simply the fact that she is a Catholic travelling on an Irish passport that exercises our unionist representatives so much?
