Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

Fears were raised that a con­tro­ver­sial Ir­ish repub­li­can march could lead to vi­o­lence on the streets of Ruther­glen.

A group call­ing them­selves the In­de­pen­dent Repub­li­can Bands Scot­land (IRBS) had lodged a no­tice of in­ten­tion with South La­nark­shire Coun­cil to pa­rade through the town on Satur­day, August 6.

It was the third time the or­gan­i­sa­tion had looked to march on the streets of the Burgh.

Two years pre­vi­ously, a march from Castlemilk head­ing to Ruther­glen had to be scrapped when trou­ble flared on the streets.
