“homecoming parade for the regiment of two soldiers shot dead at barracks in the town”

Mark neglected to mention a salient point about the Antrim Borough Council vote in favour of a homecoming parade in the autumn for the 38 Engineer Regiment, who were given the freedom of the town two years ago.

Councillors in Antrim have voted to hold a homecoming parade for the regiment of two soldiers shot dead at barracks in the town last month.

The murders, by one of those other republican paramilitary groups, took place the day before the regiment was due to leave for Afghanistan. Of course, Sinn Féin do still have certain legacy issues..
