Sinn Féin MLA for North Antrim, Phillip McGuigan, has met with the Parades Commission in relation to an upcoming loyalist bands parade in Rasharkin.

Speaking today

“I met with the Parades Commission to discuss the upcoming loyalist bands parade by the Ballymaconnelly band along with over twenty other bands happening next Friday.

“This parade has been beset by tensions in previous years given the behaviour of band members.

“It is important the Parades Commission upholds the rights of local residents through making a rights based decision with regard to the size of the parade, the route of the parade and the timing of the parade.

“It is also vital that the conduct of participants and supporters is addressed in any determination with particular focus on music, flags and emblems.

“Only local accommodation between organisers and residents will truly resolve issues and allow the people of Rasharkin to feel safe and confident in their own village.”
