Parades Commission backs march of the turkeys…

THIS story is a real feather in the writer’s cap, nicely pointing out how the sheer absurdity of the rules we need in Northern Ireland to keep the peace are often applied to the most innocent of events. On this occasion, the turkeys of Co Fermanagh have now received permission from the Parades Commission to march the streets of Irvinestown. Presumably the lucky pluckers received no objections from militant vegetarians.
