Mr Jim Boland, Parade Organiser of Coote Memorial Lodge, complained that an article was inaccurate when it stated that a parade which took place in Belfast on 19 June 2009 had been organised by the Lodge, which was referred to, in addition, as a loyal order. In fact, Coote Memorial had neither organised nor participated in the parade.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction:

A report on June 20 said that a contentious parade in the Ardoyne area of north Belfast the previous night had been organised by the Coote Memorial loyal order. We would like to acknowledge that Coote Memorial is an Orange lodge rather than a loyal order, and it did not organise or participate in the event in question.

Report: 79
