Bands breached Parades determination in Rasharkin – McKay

21 August, 2015


Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay said he will be reporting a number of breaches of a Parades Commission determination tonight during a band parade in Rasharkin.

Daithí McKay said:

“Thankfully tonight’s loyalist band parade through Rasharkin passed off peacefully.

“Residents will be glad to see the village return to normal after the huge policing operation today because of this parade.

“There were a number of breaches of the Parades Commission’s determination and we will be reporting those to the Commission and the police.

“There were bands which took part which were not allowed to carry UVF and UDA flags and that is to be welcomed. However, residents do not want bands of this nature invited to the village.

“We also saw a band take part which was not notified to the police or the Parades Commission.”
