Lomond Woods Balloch

Booked 2 nights in Balloch at Lomond Woods Park at lunchtime walked down to the Glenroy Bar to hopefully watch the football. On entering the bar with my mask on I was immediately confronted by the barman (Adam) who demanded that I cover up my polo shirt. The shirt has a small Northern Ireland Football Association logo on it but is certainly not Football shirt. On explaining this to the barman he stated that I cover up or leave the bar. Obviously no welcome here for Northern Ireland people. I left the bar without an arguement and went to the Tullie where I was welcomed. My wife joined me after the game and on the way back to the park I called in and asked,politely, to speak to the manager. I had to ask 3 times before the barman went to get the owner. The owner very kindly overruled the barman much to his dismay but by this time the welcome was very hollow. Be careful. If you are from NI it seems that Adam has a dislike for us.Kenny Allen Ballymena
