Three appear in court over illegal parade

By Paul Higgins

Three men from the Republic of Ireland have appeared in court accused of taking part in an illegal republican parade.

The three men - two from Cork and one from Dublin - were also jointly charged with having or carrying clothing which "gave rise to the suspicion that they were member or supporter of a proscribed organisation".

Standing in the dock at Craigavon Magistrates Court, 48-year-old Ray Mallon, Sean Paul McCarthy (52) and 22-year-old Roy Patrick Shaw all confirmed they understood the two charges they each face.

The court has previously heard there could be as many as 70 people prosecuted for taking part in an illegal republican parade on May 28 this year.

A female detective said she believed she could connect all three to the offences.

Releasing all three on bail, Judge King adjourned the case until December 9 and excused them from attending.
