There was a protest taking place outside Sports Direct on Saturday afternoon.
However, it wasn’t the Sports Direct on Northumberland Street in Newcastle Upon Tyne, or even the Sports Direct store at St James Park.
Instead, the protest was taking place outside a Sports Direct store in Dublin City centre.
It was the SD store at 18 Earl St N,North City, Dublin 1, D01 E9C1
Newcastle United fans Davey Drape-Comyn traveled over to watch the Ireland v Denmark match on Saturday night.

However, he didn’t travel alone.
For company he had taken the Sports Redirect banner which has been paraded this season inside and outside of Newcastle United matches, as part of the protests against Mike Ashley and his running of NUFC.
The small but perfectly formed protest taking place as shown below, despite the rain.
I have a saying I generally use at work: “it’s better to have done something (even if sometimes it works out the wrong decision) than nothing at all”. Not everyone wants to stand outside a shop so What else (legally) can a toon fan do as an individual to get a message across? pic.twitter.com/f5dKAARLgu

The campaign carries on, as Newcastle fans look for every angle to help persuade Mike Ashley his time is up at Newcastle United.
