Taoiseach worried about marching season

The Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has hinted that this year's marching season in the North could cause difficulties on a number of fronts.

Mr Ahern told the Dáil that no progress is being made on Drumcree, which has traditionally been a flashpoint in County Armagh.

He added that the Orange Order is planning to march in Derry City this year.This is a move that could cause problems.

The Taoiseach said: ''There is a huge concern in Derry about a proposal from the Orange Order to have its main celebration in the city for the first time in 13-years.

''The order is continuing to refuse to engage in direct talks with the residents in Derry. In contrast the apprentice boys have made an agreement on an annual basis.''


Proof if any were needed that the Orange Order is inciting sectarian tension ahead of the marching season. The Orange Order are more concerned with causing difficulties for nationalists rather than upholding any sort of tradition.

Me thinks it's time Unionists wised up to this dangerous organisation and called on it to disband.
