AN application to stage a loyalist parade in Armagh on the evening of St Patrick’s Day has been approved.

It will not overlap with the main St Patrick’s parade in the historic city.

The Cormeen Rising Sons of William parade would usually hold its St Patrick’s Day march in the village of Killylea, but the organisers have asked to move it to Armagh city because its size has been increasing year on year.

Around 40 bands and up to 1,200 participants are due to take part.

Nationalist politicians have raised objections to the march.
