Ford welcomes Ardoyne parade resolution

Alliance Leader David Ford has welcomed the announcement of the resolution of the Ardoyne parading dispute.

A deal, subject to a Parades Commission ruling, will allow protesting Orange lodges to complete their 2013 parade next Saturday (October 1) and the subsequent ending of the Twaddell camp.

“After many months of disagreement, the announcement of a resolution of the dispute between members of the loyal orders and Ardoyne residents is very welcome,” said Mr Ford.

“I congratulate the representatives of the two sides on reaching an agreement and thank the mediators for their good work, despite the disappointments of the past summer. I look forward to seeing the full details of the deal being published and most importantly, put into action.”
