McKay calls for Dervock Young Defenders band to be banned from future parades

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin MLA Daithí McKay has called on the Parades Commission and the Orange Order to take action to prevent Dervock Young Defenders from taking part in sensitive parades in future.

The North Antrim MLA said:

“This band is yet again at the centre of controversy after the 12th July parade in Ballycastle.

“The provocative behaviour of some members of the band as evidenced in a number of YouTube recordings left a lot to be desired to say the least.

“I have reported this to the PSNI and another Dervock ‘bonfire’ Facebook page that used the ‘KAT’ slogan (Kill all taigs) immediately after the parade in Ballycastle.

“The last thing anyone wanted in Ballycastle was trouble of any sort.

“That requires positive responsible leadership from everyone.

“However we also need to show a no tolerance approach to attempts to raise tensions and promote sectarianism.”
