These are the comments attributed to Ian Mc Crea MLA about Tyrone’s defeat: “Great to see Tyrone beat in the Ulster semi’s today hope Donegal beat Londonderry in the final to keep the celebrations out of Mid Ulster.” Ian, you and I know each other a long time and despite your father’s critics he has always been decent to me. Subject to accuracy of remarks about Tyrone team by Ianmccreamla on Twitter, I feel these are an error of judgement. The Tyrone team has taken a battering in the person of Mickey Harte and family and so too have the Kerr family at hands of dissidents in the past year. Why did you say what is attributed to you? I will forgive you for what you have said but I would know in my bones what you said is incalculably insensitive and contrary to tone increasingly struck by party leader Peter Robinson. The coffee is still on me.
