Sinn Fein MP Conor Murphy has reacted angrily to the Parades Commission verdict on the Kingsmill march. Newry Times reported earlier today how residents in Whitecross – along with Sinn Fein and SDLP representatives – gathered last week at a meeting to publicly display their disapproval with the route of the march. Commenting on the Parades Commission determination regarding the march in South Armagh on February 25th, Murphy said he was disappointed with the outcome. Speaking to Newry Times, Conor Murphy said, “The organisers of this march are intent on damaging the good community relations in this area and the determination helps them succeed in that. I have made representations on behalf of and in support of the residents affected by this blatantly inflammatory march and there is huge disappointment in the Whitecross area over the decision.” He added, “The people of the area want to be left in peace rather than confronting the organisers. The Parades Commission has just created problems that could damage community relations in Whitecross and surrounding areas.”
