Football fights stop music

By Ana Naomi de Sousa

Aggressive football fans are scaring off musicians who perform in a pub in Oval.

Irish folk singer William Barr is refusing to sing in his usual Sunday slot because of escalating violence from the Scottish football team supporters.

The Sunday late night music sessions have run for as far back as residents can remember, and regulars like Barr have gained a loyal fan-base. But this is all changing due to the rowdy behaviour of the football fans.

Musician Greg Mckneally, 31, is missing his slot too: “I don’t want to take the risk.”
