Councillor Darryl Wilson wishes all bands and spectators a safe and enjoyable evening at Ballymaconnelly SOTQ Parade in Rasharkin this evening. (Friday 19th 7pm).

“There has been every effort made to increase tensions ahead of the parade by an intolerant few who do not represent the majority of people in the area.

There is no question that the bands and spectators have behaved in an impeccable fashion, especially over the last number of years, but rather than be rewarded for their compliance with determinations, the restrictions increase with each passing year.

Once again the number of bands allowed to take part in the parade has been limited to 25, which places an unreasonable and unnecessary limit on the right to peacefully and lawfully celebrate Protestant heritage and culture.

“It is also unreasonable to stipulate that a single drum beat be played while the bands march past the ever decreasing protest areas. This is simply pandering to previous Republican protests which have been unlawful and violent. They should not be continually rewarded for their intolerance”
