BBC apologise for gaffe after Derry GAA is referred to as Londonderry in bulletin

Victoria Leonard

The BBC has admitted it made "an error" after a radio host sparked a furore by referring to Derry GAA team as 'Londonderry' during a sports bulletin.

During the 6pm broadcast of Radio Ulster News on Sunday, the presenter stated: "Meanwhile, Ulster teams had a disappointing start in the opening games of the Allianz National League. Tyrone, Donegal, Monaghan and Londonderry all lost, but there were wins for Fermanagh, Armagh, Antrim and Down, and Slaughtneil's camogie team qualified for this year's All-Ireland final."

The gaffe didn't go unnoticed, with Ulster Schools GAA tweeting: "Still can't believe that your 6pm Radio Ulster News bulletin claimed that 'Londonderry' suffered defeat in today's GAA NFL. Is this 'policy'?"

Derry GAA also released a statement on the slip-up.

A spokesperson said: "We were made aware of the BBC broadcast on Sunday evening.

"We raised our concerns with senior management in the BBC on Monday morning.

"We have since received both an apology and assurances that it will not happen again."

A BBC spokesperson said: "This was in error and was corrected as soon as possible and not repeated in any subsequent bulletin. We wouldn't comment on the number or nature of complaints."
