The Greater Ardoyne Residents Collective have confirmed they will protest against an Orange Order parade in Ardoyne on Saturday.

The parade in question is set to end a three year deadlock and comes after protracted negotiations.

GARC, the republican residents’ group, said they will apply for a march and rally on Friday evening and a protest on the day of the parade, Saturday 1 October.

The deal on the parade was reached with the consent of Crumlin Ardoyne Residents Collective (CARA) and the Ligoniel Orange Lodges.
