Poll: Should the 'Love Ulster' march go ahead in Dublin?

Do they have a right to march or is is too dangerous?

DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL is to vote tonight on a motion to oppose the ‘Love Ulster’ march planned for the capital next month.

The march is organised by Loyalist campaigner and politician Willie Frazer who said in December, “no mistake, we’re coming to Dublin.”

The march seeks to campaign for justice for victims of IRA violence and features drums, flags and pageantry reminiscent of Orange Order marches in Northern Ireland.

A previous Dublin march led to violent riots in 2006 when it was opposed by disparate republican groups.

A Fianna Fáil councillor is tabling tonight’s and says the march proposes a “severe threat”.

Today’s poll, Should the ‘Love Ulster’ march go ahead in Dublin?

Poll Results:

No (10512)
Yes (1593)
