Golliwogs removed from sale at retail outlet near Dungannon, NI

“A HIGH-END retail complex in Co Tyrone has been at the centre of controversy for a second time over the sale of golliwogs. […] The same shop, Linen Mill House and Garden, was the focus of controversy in 2008 for selling golly key-rings and mugs. […] At the time owner Dave Russell vowed to continue selling the products, saying there was “no racist element whatsoever” and branding concerns as “political correctness gone mad”.”

“The nearby village of Moygashel has been a focus of fears over racism in the past.”
