Image Hosted by ImageShack.usThe Sinn Féin President, Gerry Adams, has written to the leaders of the loyalist parade organisations in Northern Ireland requesting a meeting ahead of the main marching season.

Mr Adams said dialogue between the loyal orders and Sinn Féin could help prevent a repeat of the serious violence which surrounded a number of loyalist parades last year.

The loyal orders in a statement said that as a demonstration of the reality behind Mr Adams's words they would expect to see the highly controversial Drumcree Orange parade in Portadown allowed to march down the nationalist Garvaghy Road.
