According to Alex Elliott, chairman of Traditional Ulster Voice, up to 70 loyalists objecting to the removal of the Union Flag from Belfast City Hall turned out for the latest protest, this time at Gaol Square in Enniskillen.

The Orangeman criticised "pan-Nationalist politicians" in the Townhall and described the inclusion of the Irish language on Council-owned vehicles as the "continued discrimination against the Unionist people within the county."

Willie Frazer, victims campaigner from South Armagh, spoke at the protest and criticised the DUP for going into Government with Sinn Fein.

He added: "[The] IRA are attempting to re-write history that they were the victims of the Troubles. You know exactly who the victims were. We know what happened at the Cenotaph twenty five years ago. Read the names on the memorial. The innocent slaughtered by animals."
