Trimble should meet Garvaghy residents

Statement from Upper Bann assembly member, Dara O Hagan, calling on David Trimble to meet the Garvaghy Road Residents Association, following his meetings with the Orange Order and FAIT.

Ms O Hagan said:

``It is now David Trimbles responsibility as First Minister designate to address the ongoing Drumcree situation and the intimidation which has resulted from it. This situation can only be resolved through dialogue and I would urge Mr. Trimble to meet immediately with the Garvaghy Road Residents and seek a resolution to the Drumcree problem.

``The ever increasing intimidation of the nationalist population in Portadown must be addressed by both community and political leaders, and David Trimble as first minister and the local MP clearly has an important role to play in resolving these difficult matters.''
