Fingal Candidate Gemma O'Doherty blasts Grand Hotel Malahide for shunning pro life group

Fingal Candidate Gemma O'Doherty blasts Grand Hotel Malahide for shunning pro life group
Independent Fingal Candidate Gemma O'Doherty has called on people to boycott Grand Hotel Malahide over its decision to cancel the meeting of local christian pro life group 'Fingal Witness' which was booked for Wednesday Night.

Ms O'Doherty said the Hotel cancelled the meeting publicly on its twitter account without informing the organisers first . The hotel is reported to have received phone calls from people opposed to the meeting taking place. 

Ms O'Doherty explained via her Facebook : 

when I first announced my candidacy in Fingal i was approached by a number of pro life groups in the area because I'm probably the only pro life candidate and the only candidate coming from a christian heritage approach . 

The local christian pro life group in malahide [fingal witness] contacted me and we're very keen to meet with me . This organisation Fingal Witness said lets hold a meeting . It was booked , they were reassured and credit card details were taken . The hotel contacted Fingal witness and said that they had got phone calls but they had not made any decision to cancel . I read online that it had been cancelled and I rang the organiser and he said no the hotel didn't tell me that so then I went onto the hotels twitter account and they had announced it publicly. Did not even have the decency to ring the organiser . How could you ever step foot in a hotel like that again . I'm asking every one of you to boycott that corrupt hotel . The grand hotel in Malahide . 
  
Ms O'Doherty added that the Meeting will now take place outside the Hotel .

#
from what i understand , fingal witness are doing great work , to think that any Hotel would shun people because of their beliefs in this day and age is quite disturbing to say the least
#
worse than the black and tans these hotels . this is why its so important we protect freedom of speech .
#
the iron curtain strikes again . we already know of the cosy relationship that exists between the gov and hotel owners . direct provision being one of them . this is censorship plain and simple .
