The ABOD Ligoneil Walker Club parade on the Crumlin Road passed off peacefully. However nationalist protesters breached the Parades Commission determination again. Their protest was restricted to Estoril Park because of republican violence in June and July last year but they protested outside the shops. The PSNI did not enforce this PC ruling, a habit when it comes to nationalist protests (scroll down).
Ardoyne nationalists also fail to comply with the parades legislation when organising their own events. The last 5 republican parades in the area have submitted late notifications.
