Battle of the Boyne site

Dear Sir,

The Editorial (B.T. 15 December) on the Orange Order strikes the right note which should be endorsed by all true Orangeman, who adhere to the core values of the orange tradition.

However may I point out for clarification that the ‘development of the Battle of the Boyne site’ was not a direct result of the recent opening up of ‘new channels of communication’.

The Inter-Departmental Committee for the Development of the Boyne Site, on which I serve, was set up by the Dublin Government in the Spring of 1998, following the public announcement by the government in January 1998.

Yours etc.

Brian Kennaway (Rev)

Member of the Inter- Departmental Committee for the Development of the Boyne Site
