There was uproar among the Glenavon fans at the manner in which they were treated at the National Stadium for the Irish Cup semi final on April 1.
As an elected representative for Lurgan, and as someone who experienced it myself, I made a point of writing to the the chief executive of the IFA expressing my disappointment at the arrangements and asking the questions that the fans wanted answers to.
Two weeks on I have yet to receive even an acknowledgment from the IFA to confirm they have received my letter and that it is being dealt with. In the meantime, fans from both Linfield and Glenavon are growing increasingly frustrated at the way the tickets for the final are being sold.
As I have said previously, I am a football supporter and I normally give the IFA the benefit of the doubt when I hear criticism of them. However on this occasion I have been left extremely disappointed at the way in which they have treated an elected representative who is merely raising concerns relayed to me by rank and file supporters.
