Irish nightclub takes down offensive advert
Featuring woman golfer
An Irish nightclub has taken down an offensive billboard of a woman golfer.
The advert showed the back of a woman body with the strapline “Libertys: Your 19th hole for the summer”.
Liberty’s is a club in Buncrana in Co Donegal, where the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open will be held nearby in July.
Sinn Fein senator Padraig Mac Lochlainn said: “This large billboard sign on the approach to my home town of Buncrana is just plain offensive to women.
“And it is offensive to men who respect the women in their lives.
“If it was shock value publicity they were seeking, then mission accomplished.”
Mr Mac Lochlainn added: “Thank you to the management of Libertys for listening to your local community and respectfully taking down the billboard sign in Buncrana.
“This is not a bit of a laugh any more. Society has changed.
“All of us men need to step up and see that all women deserve respect, not just our mothers, daughters, sisters, wives or partners.”
Amen to that.
