Newry Mourne & Down district Council has rescinded their decision to award the Newry Rainbow Community £50,000 of funding as reported in Newry.ie
However after deeper investigation by Newry Spud we can reveal that the money is being withheld so council CEO, Marie Ward can get her kitchen refitted and the Councillors can go to Magaluf for their Christmas party.
CEO Ward told Newry Spud:
“Thon gays get enough funding for God’s sake. Despite my £138,950 salary I’m gonna use a lock of quid from it and get a new kitchen fitted.
Then with the rest left over I’m flying all the Councillors to Magaluf for an awful session but we’re not treating the ordinary workers who haven’t had a Christmas party in four years. They can sit in Cobbles with the gays LOL.”
