Lurgan GAA Club Cancels St Patrick’s Parade

The Belfast Telegraph has a quick round-up of where “the Guinness and green beer will be flowing” today. Not mentioned is Lurgan where, amidst a concerted effort to play down the capabilities of republican paramilitary groups, the local GAA club has cancelled the St Patrick’s Day parade.

In a statement, the club said the “scenes of violence and destruction in Lurgan and Craigavon within the last seven days have created considerable anxiety and concern within the local community”.
