Ruling over violent Ardoyne parade given.

#1
The Parades Commission has said it regretted the need to issue a determination over a contentious Orange parade which erupted in violence two summers ago.

The determination came as the Police Ombudsman rejected a series of nationalist complaints about the police handling of disturbances in the Ardoyne on the Twelfth of July in 2004 <more>

Its amazing that you can have an Orange parade in Rossknowlagh, County Donegal with not a sign of trouble?

I suppose that's because they are more tolerant down there,no press coverage (or Gerry & Martin!) & no PSNI to 'intimidate' the local community. Thank funk I'm not here for the 'Glorious Twelfth'!

Tour of the North passed off with only minor incidents, thats normally a good indicator the 12th will be quiet. Although who can tell!!!

Maybe it's the area being the top of the Shankill/Crumlin Roads that does it but if there's gonna be violence in Belfast,it's there!!!!!
