Loyalists hold protest outside Carrick primary

Carrick Primary School was the focus of a loyalist protest this week.

On Tuesday evening a small number of protesters with Union Flags gathered outside the school at Sloan Street to voice their disapproval at plans to turn the Maze prison into a ‘shrine for terrorists’.

It’s understood the protest had been planned for Lurgan town centre but was relocated to Carrick in light of objections by some parents to the introduction of Gaelic football coaching during PE lessons at the mixed primary school.
