    ’Love Ulster’ Parade II: Bigger & Better

    The group proposing to hold another 'Love Ulster' rally in Dublin says it expects around 3,000 people to attend a similar march this year.



    FAIR, which represents unionist victims of the Troubles, saidgardaí have agreed to police any rally whichit decides to hold.


    Last year, hundreds of counter demonstrators were involved in riots in Dublin city when the group attempted to hold a similar march.

    In February 2006, hundreds of supporters of the 'Love Ulster' march left Dublin by garda escort after their rally failed to get under way due to an outbreak of violence.


    Shop windows were broken, cars burned out and members of the public assaulted as the wave of violence spread across the city centre.


    After meeting with gardaí for around an hour this morning, Willie Frazer of Families Acting for Innocent Relatives said gardaí were supportive of another parade.



    He accused members of the Republican movement of causing violence last year and said that gardaí had concerns this summer may be too soon to hold another parade, as tensions are still running high.


    More than 120 people were identified as having being involved in the violence last year; so far 85 people suspected of involvement have appeared before the courts.


    Mr Frazer said that 25 bands may attend the next march, which he hopes takes place in August or September.


    Gardaí described the meeting as 'cordial and productive'</rte:></DIV>

          So it would be "a below-par parade" then? [img]smileys/lol.gif[/img]

            I would love if they were actually doing this as a giant sting operation - advertise Love Ulster II, then wait for the scobes to show up and sling em in the pokey.


            Sadly that's not going to happen, and asI live just off O'Connell St., I guess I'm having an "indoors day" that particular weekend.

                  I can't fail to see the irony in people objecting tofolk from Ulster coming down to protest in Dublin. Theyobviously wouldn't want aunited Ireland then, sure you'd then have allsorts coming down to the capital of Ireland - Dublin

                    saw yer man frazer on the 6.1 tonight.comes across as quite an untasteful character.nationalist violence was all wrong(which it is), whereas he thought there was some wriggle room when loyalists butchered people.pretending to be a Christian,then saying that people who killed people in the IRA shouldnt have to serve jail time


                    i find the naming a bit wrong.love ulster?? im pretty sure they're not taling about donegal,cavan and monaghan.


                    however if we want a united ireland we have to bring in the unionist tradition and respect it.thats what true republicanism is all about.greenand orange side by side.like it is on the flag

                      Be that as it may I would prefer if the racist homophobes from Norn Iron stayed in their own country instead of engaging our own bunch of racist homophobes resplendent in their Celtic jersies, demonstrating their oirishness.

                        It's always been a bit of a puzzle how wearingthe jersey of a Scottish football club can be a demonstration of their Irishness. Surely wearing a Crusaders one would be better and they wouldn't be classed as bandwagon jumpers like those stupid sods wearing Man U ones when they aren't from Manchester.

                            I'm not all that keen on orangemen marching through Dublin. But if they must, I'd rather they were politley ignored than given the satisfaction of causing mass disruption.


                            Maybe we should let them hold the march in an enclosed area, let the scobes in as well and let them go at it where they won't bother the rest of us?
