Kelly commends efforts to reach parades resolution
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly today commended the efforts of all those involved in efforts to reach a resolution to issues around parades and protests on the Crumlin Road.
Gerry Kelly said:
"Sinn Féin has been consistent in our support for resolving issues around parading and protests through genuine and inclusive dialogue involving local communities and parade organisers.
"So I commend the efforts of all those involved in this dialogue and particularly representatives of the residents group CARA who invested a lot of time in this process.
"The issue of parades and protests along the Crumlin Road past Mountainview and the Dales have brought huge challenges to the communities who live there.
"No resolution has been possible at this time.
"However, all of us in positions of political leadership have a responsibility to continue to do all in our power to support those in local communities involved in seeking resolution to contentious issues through dialogue."
