I received an e mail from the organisers on Friday and they have now decided to go down the road of one sided historical representation , in the sense that they have now decided on the advice of their stakeholders to not allow any German WW2 groups in the show as they may be viewed as possibly offensive to the public and therefor we are not able to attend the show .
This is the first and only show / event that has ever gone down this road , despite having been the in Duncannon , The Curragh and Naas for many years now . I think this is a silly road for the organisers to go down and is an oppertunity missed to see and display to the public such a vast array of historical vehicles and weapons and equipment .
Will this mean so that Black and Tans will not be allowed in the show , or British Paras , Britsh auxillaries ?????? are these not odffencive to the Irish "public".
I would urge other german groups to check with the organisers before ye move vehicles and equipment to Cork in the advent of the show , we did and are now out of pocket from it having moved 3 trucks from Wexford to Cork last week .
