Sinn Féin make late application for Belfast parade

Back in August, Brian valiantly attempted to get a debate going about parades and “tolerating things you don’t like, provided they don’t threaten you.” Whilst Mark thought the Royal Irish Regiment homecoming parade in Belfast on 2 November had chosen to include a “needlessly provocative gesture” en route.. Now, as UTV reports, Sinn Féin have lodged a late application with the Parades Commission for a parade in Belfast for up to 500 people on the same day, to start 45 mins before the RIR parade. The Sinn Féin parade is to take in Bank Square, Chapel Lane, Castle Street, Castle Junction, Donegall Place.
