They still celebrate the Battle of the Boyne. When I studied Irish history in Ireland, the professor I had was from Belfast. Those parades when they do it through Catholic areas a means of provoking shit. Anyhow sucks to hear about violence because I had thought things were getting better.

Things really are better, compared to what they used to be. But shit like this does flare up, especially around ‘marching season’, and in some neighborhoods. This sounds particularly bad.
