Arch vandalised ahead of parade

By Staff Reporter

T he orange arch in Glengormley was vandalised this week hours before it was officially opened during a loyalist parade. Republican slogans were painted on to the arch in the middle of the village. The incident happened a few hours before the mini Twelfth parade when hundreds of loyalists descended in Glengormley.

Phil Hamilton from the Progressive Unionist Party said there has been much good cross community work in the area.

“This was a deliberate attempt by some to raise tensions in the area,” he said

“There has been great talks and work carried out in the area between both sides and we don’t want a small minority of people to derail that.

“There has been so much good work going on and we don’t want it to be ruined by a small few who want to vandalise.”
