Description

Father Neill Horan, from Co. Kerry, is on the Shankill Road speaking to locals about the loyalist tradtions and showing them his Irish dancing skills. There are mixed reactions from the public, both positive and negative. In an interview, Fr. Horan speaks to UTV about what brought him out to the Shankill today, he is also faced with the question of whether or not he understood this could be seen as provocative.
