“You’re not one of those, are you?”

Former Limavady Presbyterian Minister, David Armstrong, has been featured prominently in the media this week, as The Irish News in particular have followed up on the decision of Limavady unionist councillors to block moves to give the Freedom of the Borough to the now Anglican Minister with a series of articles in which Armstrong speaks of his memories of that dark period in his life. Amongst his revelations is the news that then Archbishop of Armagh, Cardinal O’Fiach, provided him with money to help relocate his family and continue his studies. Armstrong is also firmly of the opinion that the Orange Order were implicated in his treatment 25 years ago and again more recently through the actions of the unionist councillors in Limavady.
