Bomb scare in Armagh reroutes main St Patrick’s Day parade…

Just hearing about a bomb scare in Market Street College Street in the centre of Armagh, pushing the main parade out of the centre of town (and where tonight’s Band Parade is due to walk)…  No reports on the size of the parade, but the bomb scare cannot do anything to ease tensions regarding the Ulster band parade tonight… It’s worth noting that it has been many years since the last bomb scare in the city…
