"Sorry for any offence caused"
Leinster and Ireland prop Cian Healy has apologised for a tweet which has drawn criticism.
His tweet, which has since been deleted, read: "Ya ain't alternative unless you're in front of a blue wall these days".
The blue wall refers to a recently removed mural in support of the Repeal The 8th campaign which was on the side of the Project Arts Centre and has since been painted over in blue.
Healy's tweet appeared to make reference to that and has drawn criticism on social media from those who feel his words belittle the campaign.
He has since apologised on Twitter:
Sorry for any offence caused. no political slamming on my part, nor none intended. But cheers for your lovely messages 👍— Cian Healy (@ProperChurch) July 27, 2016
Ignorance on my part to what the "blue wall" was. Merely reacted to seeing it all over my timeline.— Cian Healy (@ProperChurch) July 27, 2016
