Palpable Anger Following Rathfriland Parade Incident – TUV South Down

Statement by TUV leader Jim Allister:

“There is palpable anger across the Unionist community following last night’s outrageous incident in Rathfriland in which a car was driven into two bands. This is entirely understandable as we could very well be waking up to news of many people injured or worse. 

“The shocking behaviour captured on film needs to result in a robust PSNI investigation and arrests. 

“Those who have done nothing but demonise Ulster’s rich musical heritage also need to reflect this morning. Whipping up hatred against loyalist parades was always wrong and needs to stop. There are some who preach about the need to avoid dangerous rhetoric who need to reflect on the consequences of their words this morning.”
