Wilson congratulates Ballymaconnelly Sons of Conquerors on ‘impeccable’ parade in Rasharkin

1 Mins read

Ulster Unionist Councillor Darryl Wilson has congratulated Ballymaconnelly Sons of Conquerors Flute Band on hosting an ‘impeccable’ parade in Rasharkin tonight.

Councillor Wilson said : “Credit is due to the organisers and the visiting bands. Unfortunately abusive language was directed towards the bands and local elected representatives from the small protest which was held.”

“The parade finished promptly at 9pm, when cars were leaving the village some were pelted with stones. This intolerance is wholly unacceptable, I will be in touch with the PSNI and the parades commission immediately.”

“Unfortunately it only takes a small mindless minority to stir up unnecessary tension instead of aiming towards the shared space which we all desire.”
