PROTEST AGAINST ATTACKS ON FANS IN DERRY TOMORROW

Supporters, residents and club directors are taking part in a protest walk to the Brandywell.

Local residents and supporters of Derry City Football Club will take to the streets before tomorrow night's match to protest against attacks on visiting fans.

The move comes following the attack on Dundalk fans last week by a mob as a supporters' bus left the Brandywell Stadium after Derry lost 2-1 in the FAI Cup semi-final replay.

A teenage Dundalk fan needed medical attention after he was hit on the head with a bottle during the attack, which is said to have been carried out by local youths.

Club directors will join the symbolic march which will leave from outside Mailey’s Bar at 7.15 pm, going from Lecky Road to the Brandywell before the Premiership tie against Bohemians.
