A GRIEVING nephew was unable to attend his uncle's wake, after being barred from a club in his youth.
Liam Doocey wanted to pay his last respects to his uncle Paddy at the Shamrock Club in WGC.
The 22-year-old from Longlands Road, WGC, was banned six years earlier when police were called after a glass door was smashed.
Mr Doocey, dad to 16-month-old Preston and step-dad to 11-year-old Troy, said: "It was a long time ago and I've got a family of my own now.

"Under the circumstances we couldn't allow him in. It's not personal.
