The people responsible for the erection of a UVF flag in the mixed village of Bessbrook have agreed to take the flag down from the lamppost but have replaced it with a less offensive flag, that of ISIS.
The Bessbrook Protestant Loyalist Alliance said they were ‘shocked’ at the furious reaction of locals to the flags erection.
A spokesman told us:
“It’s only a flag of the UVF who murdered over 500 people. We don’t see the big deal at all.
We will fly the ISIS flag in it’s place as a less offensive alternative to appease thon yapping fenians.”
