This was part of the "love ulster" thing that's been going on. It was NOT an Orange Parade.
The march was organised, with the blessing of the Taoiseach's office to give some publicity to the campaign for justice of the families of people murdered by the IRA.
The rioters were mainly FROM Northern Ireland. The marchers were, on this occasion, blameless. They had been give an offical ok to march. Republican Sinn Fein bussed in oiks from the Deep South, and rabble rousers from the North.
Sorry, but on this occasion, the Nordie Prods were in the right.
Funny, wouldn't you say... I mean, a republican march in the North gets army protection. A Protestant march to highlight the victims of republican violence in the South gets hijacked.
Perhaps the "Free State" isn't quite so free after all...
Another inflammatory post brought to by the letters P, R, O, T, E, S, T, A, N and T. Aptly named, eh?
