Reaction to statement made by Evelyn McDaid regarding the Coleraine Orange Order Parade Wed 1st July

1 July, 2009


Sinn Féin Coleraine Councillor, Billy Leonard has commented on the statement made by the by Evelyn McDaid regarding the Coleraine Orange Order Parade on the 1st of July stating:

 

“Evelyn McDaid has been very brave since her husband was brutally murdered in Coleraine.

 

She has also been very principled and despite the horrendous context she has looked to the greater good of the community. I am therefore not surprised that she has made her appeal for this parade to pass off peacefully.

 

I am sure there will be many who agree with her call and it focuses minds to ensure that sectarianism doesn’t win through. This area must get passed this parade and indeed all other events this summer to build the sort of community that is not constantly in tension.” ENDS
