Police are investigating after obscene comments were shouted during a republican parade yesterday.

UKIP councillor Henry Reilly said that the demonstration in Kilkeel took place in two phases, one in the morning with four bands and one in the evening with two.

While most of those who had taken part in the day’s proceedings were respectful, he said during the return part some “abusive comments” were shouted at members of the town’s Protestant community.
