McGuinness meets Bogside Group

Sinn Fein Ard Chomhairle member Martin McGuinness this afternoon met the Bogside residents' Group for a detailed discussion on the current situation.

Mr. McGuinness said:

``I have been impressed by the positive efforts of the Bogside Residents' Group to reach an accommodation with the Apprentice Boys organisation.

``I pledge my continuing support for a resolution which harmonises the rights of small, isolated catholic communities and the rights of the Apprentice Boys to march.

``At this sensitive and difficult time I would appeal to nationalists to remain calm and disciplined.''
