Scrooge en Lios na gCearrbhach la Andersontown News:

Bow Street Mall in Lisburn is refusing to hang an Irish language Christmas banner in the shopping centre – a year after telling the Andersonstown News it would.

Last December we photographed centre manager Les Hopson with the banner proclaiming a ‘Merry Christmas’ to shoppers in seven different languages including Irish – Nollaig Shona.

The photo was taken after readers of the Andersonstown News contacted the paper to say that they had been shopping in Bow Street Mall in Lisburn and although there were banners displaying Christmas greetings in several languages, there were none in Irish.
