11 Jul – Decisions on Orange Marches
DECISION BY THE ORANGE ORDER
TO VOLUNTARILY REROUTE CERTAIN PARADES
STATEMENT BY CARDINAL SEÁN BRADY
ARCHBISHOP OF ARMAGH
11 July 1997
I very much welcome this decision. It will bring immense relief to a huge number of people who were terrified by the events of this week and by the prospect of further unrest over the weekend.
This is a victory for courage and common-sense and I trust it will receive a generous response. I hope it can become a basis for future progress in improving relations between the two traditions.
