Rogan calls for removal of Clough parachute regiment flag

29 June, 2019 - by Emma Rogan


Sinn Féin MLA Emma Rogan has called for the removal of a parachute regiment flag in the Clough Village area. 

The South Down MLA said: 

“A flag has been erected in the Clough Village area in support of the British army's parachute regiment. 

“These flags cause offence to many in the community, particularly at this time when the Ballymurphy Inquest is still ongoing. 

“This particular flag has been placed on the main route to Newcastle which is a key destination for tourists and an area used by all sections of the community.

“These flags are insensitive and hurtful and those who erected them should remove them immediately.”
