Martin McGuinness in IRA/IFA mix-up


Martin McGuinness mixed up the IRA with the IFA (Irish Football Association) in the Northern Ireland Assembly.

The slip of the tongue came when the deputy first minister was answering a question from Chris Lyttle, Alliance, about efforts to combat sectarianism in football.

Amid laughter, Mr McGuinness said: "Just to reiterate the point that they have gone away, you know".

The incident came during a question and answer session about a recent north south ministerial council meeting.
