McCann welcomes decision on Whiterock parade

3 July, 2017 - by Fra McCann

Sinn Féin MLA for West Belfast Fra McCann has welcomed the determination by the Parades Commission on the upcoming Whiterock parade.

Speaking today Mr McCann said:

“The determination, which prohibits the Orange Order from passing through the gates at Workman’s Avenue, is a welcome one and a vindication of the residents’ position.

“The local residents have sought dialogue to address the issues surrounding this parade but to no avail.

“Without dialogue there could be no agreement and the Parade Commission have recognised this.”
