“So far, very quiet..”

Mark’s view of his “wee walk” will be up later [Adds here it is] but, for now, here’s BBC NI home affairs correspondent Vincent Kearney on the Politics Show reporting on the Royal Irish Regiment’s homecoming parade and on the protests.

    Was a very proud citizen of Belfast today as the troops got the homecoming they so rightly deserved.

    Well said weespot. It was a very proud day for us all, it’s just a pity that the media haven’t been protraying it the way it actually was. The soldiers have done us proud as too did our supporters!!!

    Faugh A Ballagh!!

    English soldiers will never be welcome in Ireland. The people of this island nation are overwhelmingly against the occupation of the 6 counties and will do WHATEVER IT TAKES to achieve those aims.

    The woeld sees you as Irish and the north as Irish. You can fly all the flags you want but you still live on IRISH soil. 32 or war!!!!!!

    Considering the Greater Belfast area has a population of around 600,000 I’m glad to say I was with the vast majority of people who had no inclination to take part with any of Sunday’s events.

    Btw when will figures be available for the numbers of loyalist paramilitaries and supporters who appeared to be take part in Sunday’s march?

    Good to see the RIR and its Loyalist supporters making good use of the Irish Language.
