Great irony when the supporters of a Terrorist group, who provides death threats in the form of letter bombs amongst other things, go on to say they can't cope with death threats themselves."I've had death threats" article has probably already been written and are just waiting a few hours before submitting it.
Another Tim on dole.what a surprise enjoy your summer holidays lolThe Record previously revealed the club had launched a probe into a post that read "Well done the RA" on Kevin McGroarty's Instagram
A Hamilton Accies kitman who shared an image supporting the IRA has stepped down from his role at the club.
The premiership side confirmed that Kevin McGroarty, who had only been the first-team kitman for a month, resigned.
It comes amid a club probe into a post on the 26-year-old's Instagram page, apparently in a pub, with the words "Venoms at the Dubliner, well done the RA."
“RA” is a shortened term for the IRA.
We previously revealed concerns from horrified fans who contacted the Daily Record after seeing the post on McGroarty’s account on Monday.
The issue was discussed by the Accies' board of directors on Tuesday morning who unanimously agreed to launch an investigation.
On Friday a spokesperson for Hamilton Accies said: "The club can confirm that Kevin McGroarty, a kit man at Hope Stadium, has resigned from his position".
Fans previously expressed their outrage at what they called "bigoted, hate-filled behaviour".
One said: “This has gone on social media and Hamilton Accies fan forums.
“We are disgusted that the club have employed someone like this, supporting the IRA and we have contacted the club to take action.”
Another lifelong supporter of the club said: “It doesn’t matter if he’s on holiday and got a bit drunk. The fans of the club and the management of this club will not tolerate this type of bigoted, hate-filled behaviour.
It has no place here. As a club, we’re the opposite of that.
“He can take his baggage elsewhere because this will not stand at this club.”
When contacted on Tuesday, McGroarty, told the Record: “I’ve not got time just now. Can I get back to you?”
Could have booted him summarily. Less than two years so no claim for unfair dismissal.Quite rightly employers can't just sack people - to do so would leave them open to claims for wrongful dismissal or procedures not being followed. Even for gross misconduct you are still allowed a hearing. I'd imagine Hamilton told him what their plans were and invited him to a meeting. Rather than have a termination on his employment record he's resigned. In his mind he'll still have the element of doubt that nothing has been proven. Pity Google searches last forever!
He was acquitted and is teaching in an non denominational school.What ever happened to the School Teacher at Vale of Leven Academy Alexandria who had the Bobby Sands Mug and the Free Derry Christmas Card in staff room
Did the Education Authorities dismiss him
Tried to google the incident but can't find final outcome
