“Thugs” Have Forced This Irish Hotel To Cancel Their Big Upcoming Event

You’ve probably heard that the Royal Wedding is taking place this Saturday, May 19.

While many hotels, restaurants and pubs will be showing it and possibly using it as a marketing ploy for different kinds of events, this Donegal hotel has been forced into submission against planning one of their own. 

They have been forced to cancel their royal-wedding theme function after it gathered complaints from some members of the public who have been described as “thugs”

The Inishowen Gate Hotel in Buncrana was “intimidated” into calling off the event which would mark the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and that had gathered huge traction online.

The hotel announced on Facebook that: “The event planned for Saturday, May 19, will no longer be taking place and we would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any offence caused,” the hotel said in a statement.

“As one of Donegal’s most recognised hotels we are committed to ensuring we offer our guests a quality and memorable experience.”

Derry DUP councillor, David Ramsey told The Belfast Telegraph that the “intimidation” by these “thugs” was nothing short of “disgusting”. 

“The royal wedding is the largest worldwide event. Any hotel would see that as a marketing opportunity.

“For thugs to take it upon themselves to intimidate someone doing their job, marketing a wedding that the whole world will be interested in, is absolutely disgusting.”
