THE Parades Commission has ruled that two Orange Order parades cannot pass the Ardoyne shopfronts.

The Orange Order had applied to stage another Saturday march in north Belfast this weekend.

It had also applied for parades on Saturday, August 3 and Saturday, August 10.

The Commission’s ruling came as no surprise.

In its ruling, the watchdog states that on the two most upcoming demonstrations, says the Lodges and bands must not proceed between the junction of Woodvale Road and Woodvale Parade and the junction of Hesketh Road and Crumlin Road.

Thousands of demonstrators gathered at police lines in north Belfast at the weekend in support of an Orange Order parade which was prevented from walking past the Ardoyne shopfronts, on the Crumlin Road, in accordance with a Parades Commission ruling.

The Order said it wanted to complete the return parade they were banned from making on the Twelfth of July.
