    Soccer fans criticised for booing during Ervine tribute

    10:50 Wednesday January 10th 2007


    Supporters of the Belfast soccer club Cliftonville are being criticised today for disrupting a minute's silence for the late PUP leader David Ervine last night.
    A large number of fans of the mainly Catholic club booed during the tribute ahead of a match against Glentoran at the Oval Stadium last night.


    Ervine, who died on Monday after suffering a heart attack and stroke, was a life-long Glentoran fan.


    The Cliftonville supporters are being accused of letting themselves down given the fact that Mr Ervine, despite his loyalist connections, was widely respected across the political divide.

        An interesting post,MF. Once a bomber/gun runneralways a bomber/gun runner. I hope you'll remember that coming up to the election.

          David Ervine was perhaps the only politician on the loyalist/unionist side who encouraged dialogue betweenall parties to the conflict in Northern Ireland.


          I admire him for that, a person who accepted the need to sit down and negotiate with Sinn Fein.

            Pretty stupid to have a minutes silence at a Glens -Cliftonville game. Given they come from 2 different parts of the divide. His death was used for points scoring in this instance. Typical.<!-

              Jackie how was he viewed in the north. In the south he seemed like a fanatstic man.

                  do you expect any unionist or loyalist to have had a minutes silence if stone had gotten adams a few weeks ago? of course not-again its you with yer doffin the cap attitude to the british lot-the same ones who are scuppering the peace process as we speak, a historic opportunity for Sinn Féin to recognize the PSNI will be lost if it us to them.

                  you will be expecting people to pay their respects to thatcher i suspect?

                    Good background information.Certainly he had a chequered past but for someone from such a staunch loyalist background he took risks by talking with Sinn Fein when it was unpopular to do so. I believe he was threatened by the LVF for this.


                    I believe it's a loss to the peace process.

                      I agree Jackie, although it was still quite sickening to hear the booing of a man that has done so much for the NI peace process....

                            Sinn Fein do recognise the PSNI,MF. It's just that it won't cooperate with it,as in the case of the murder of Robert McCartney. But then that was "IRA business"or so one of the killers said as they butchered him.

                              David Ervine carved a unique niche for himself within the 32 counties , he was the only politician to speak out on what he believed without ambiguity or qualification.


                              He will certainly be missed in this land of nods , winks and gladhanding.
