Pissing about with parades

After noting the ways Stoneyford POVFB will go about getting around Parades Commission rulings by taking to the fields, I’ll also note how well behaved their colour party and speeches from the Orange Hall seemed to have been – despite the notable exception of current band leader, Paul Smith;

“the band will walk in the village of Stoneyford at a time and date of our own choosing.”

But the St Patricks parade in Killrea also suffered from those that seek loopholes as the clearly republican Sons of Ireland Flute Band, and not invited to the parade, applied to march the exact same route, at the exact same time as the return leg of AOH Division 387 Gortrighey’s day out.

Tacky, guys.
