It certainly is a hate incident. And politicians of all stripes were right to condemn it. If prosecutions can be brought, they should be.

I note that the Apprentice Boys of Derry had to be dragged kicking and screaming to condemn the Scotch thugs who tried to march in Derry with Para emblems on their uniforms, and no Unionist politican has yet condemned it as far as I know (condemning the PSNI for trying to keep the peace, however, has been high on their agenda).

Indeed, Londongregory proudly posed in front of a Para banner supporting Soldier F. The penny eventually dropped with the Apprentice Boys that marching in the Nationalist-majority city of Derry is a privilege, not a right. What was once a model of acceptance will soon become a contentious parade if they don't catch themselves on.

They were not scottish, the band is from Larne but named after the ship that brought the UVf guns into Larne in early 1900's..
The band did no wrong, they support a innocent member of the British army and had a subtle parachute emblem on their sleeve.
Youse don't find singing IRA songs offensive yet get while offended when we support an innocent member and proud regiment of the British army.

On the most bigoted road in Ireland who produced and nurtured the Shankill butchers, Mad dog Adair and nutjob Michael Stoner the people of that road refuse to erect a banner in support of a Para murderer who murdered two men on that road.(Maybe they have a few morals?)


THE soldier responsible for the death of Ritchie McKinnie is said to have claimed it was an “enjoyable experience” and "greatly enhanced” his standing in his British army unit.
Along with Robert Johnston, Mr McKinnie was one of two men killed while several others were shot and injured .


You shouldn't allow your anti Catholic bigotry stand in the way of facts.

Do I detect a split in the hun ranks?

Eye-opening. Imagine a Republican band marching down the Shankill Road in IRA uniforms; that's the equivalent. You are ready to condemn Republican bonfires and hate speech but unwilling to do the same as regards your own side.

When the Apprentice Boys march goes up in flames next year, you'll have no-one to blame but yourselves. And doubtless you'll gurn about PSNIRA and so forth.

Union and loyalist flags were also put on the fire.


The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) in Foyle said they were treating the matter as a “hate incident”.

Isnt it pathetic .. but at least they have virtually zero support and all our main nationalist parties "OPPOSE" this pathetic nonsense ....

unlike the unionist parties who join in when their side is doing the same only on a much much bigger scale with the support of the majority within unionism.... and with the backing of yourself as a hideous orange man no doubt too

ye just cant help yourself can ye son but yet again Im afraid there simply is no equivocation ;)

The annual bonfire in Derry drew a crowd of thousands

Thousands of people descended on the Bogside for its annual bonfire on August 15.

The fire will be lit tonight after 9pm. There’s a lively Feile family fun day taking place just yards from this site

Bonfires, like Republican flute bands, are an imitation of the worst excesses of Loyalism and are an embarrassment. Anyone who supports them or attends them is a moron.

You are right there.
Them reb flute bands are an embarrassment, only a dozen members and neither in tune nor in step.
Just typical.of rebs, not having the prod ethics.

Why is the apprentice boys saying the band is no longer welcome?

McFly,
The apprentice boys isn't saying that.
Other bands who marched on Saturday have since pulled their support for the Apprentice Boys of Derry in light of their recent statement condemning the Clyde Valley Flute Band's actions.

Rathcoole Protestant Boys have shown their support for Clyde Valley in a Facebook post where they announced they would not participate in another Apprentice Boys of Derry parade again.

But that's not what you initially posted was it?

Hopefully this whole debacle spells the end, at last, of these grossly offensive hate displays in public.
