PRIEST PLEADS WITH NIGHTCLUB TO CANCEL CONTROVERSIAL ‘GINGER’ EVENT

first_imgA priest has said he is disgusted by an event which is to be held tonight called ‘Shag a Ginger Night.’Fr Lorcán Ó Searcaigh, Parish Priest in Glenfinn, said the event in Pulse Nightclub in Leterkenny was an insult to red haired people.Fr. Ó Searcaigh said on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta today that he had been contacted by concerned parents about the event, who were very angry, and felt that it was clearly a form of bullying against red heads. “I was disgusted to hear the theme of this event. The parents really feel that it’s a form of bullying, and I think it’s insulting to people with red hair.”He said that he had in fact contacted Pulse nightclub to verify that the information he had was accurate.“I spoke to the nightclub, and they told me that the theme was just a gimmick. I told them that if they had to stoop that low to get people in, they shouldn’t be in business at all.”Fr. Ó Searcaigh said that he had spoken to the Gardaí, but that there was no law being broken as there were no laws against discrimination on grounds of appearance, and that it would be a civil rather than a criminal matter. The Letterkenny Institute of Technology have said the event is nothing to do with them and they are not involved in its promotion.Fr Ó Searcaigh appealed to the nightclub to change the theme of the event.“I spoke to the nightclub a second time as well, and told them again that I was very unhappy about the event and that a lot of people were very upset about it.”The event has attracted a lot of controversy, promising free entry to people with red hair, offering to dye people’s hair red, and offering free condoms.PRIEST PLEADS WITH NIGHTCLUB TO CANCEL CONTROVERSIAL ‘GINGER’ EVENT was last modified: October 6th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Pulse NightclubShag A Gingerstudentslast_img
