No parade in Cork

As mentioned elsewhere – the Orange Order has pulled out of the Saint Patrick`s Day parade in Cork due to concerns over safety.

“Orange Order grand secretary Drew Nelson said both his organisation and the parade organisers were disappointed that the Order would not be attending the festivities.

He added that he welcomed the invitation and hoped the Order would be able to participate in the event next year.”
