McAllister urges all sides to respect Parades Commission decision

Alliance North Belfast Councillor Nuala McAllister has urged all sides to respect the Parades Commission decision on an Orange Order parade on the 12thJuly in Ardoyne.

Cllr Nuala McAllister said: “All sides must respect the ruling of the Parades Commission. They are the lawful regulatory body who are there to make decisions on parading matters. Anybody who breaks this determination is therefore breaking the law.

“Politicians and community leaders must watch their language in relation to this ruling so as to not raise tensions in the area. I do not want to see more young people get a criminal record, so I would appeal for calm following last year’s trouble.

“The violence that marred Northern Ireland last summer is avoidable if all groups respect the rule of law.”
