Beattie demands answers on City Hall flute band display

Sinn Féin Councillor Ciarán Beattie has branded the actions of a loyalist flute band parading around Belfast City Hall ‘disgraceful’ after videos emerged on social media. 

Councillor Ciarán Beattie said his party has been in touch with the Chief Executive of Belfast City Council and will be demanding answers.

“Video footage posted on social media of a loyalist flute band parading around the corridors and reception of Belfast City Hall on Sunday is disgraceful.

“This sends out the wrong message of the changing Belfast and City Hall which is supposed to be a shared space and open to all.

“I have contacted the Chief Executive to raise serious concerns and demand answers as to how and why this was allowed to happen.

“A Council investigation is now underway to identify a possible breach of protocol and into the conduct of this flute band.”
