Wes does North Inner City proud

14 June 2016

Wes Hoolohan’s wonder goal in UEFA 2016 in Ireland’s draw against Sweden last night sent Ireland’s fans into ecstasy. Wes is from Dublin’s North Inner City and his parents still live in Portland Row.

Another hero from Portland Row is Kelly Harrington who won silver at the World Boxing Championships in Azerbaijan a couple of weeks ago.

Too often we hear bad news about the Inner City and people are quick to jump on the bandwagon of drugs and criminal activity.

Wes and Kelly are the good news stories. These are the people from the North Inner City who are doing the whole country proud. 

People should stop knocking the North Inner-city and let us praise the people of the North Inner City for the incredible things they are doing in difficult circumstances.
