Hundreds attend #WeDeserveBetter rallies in Armagh and Portadown

Hundreds of people turned up to #WeDeserveBetter rallies in Armagh and Portadown last night in protest at lack of progress at Stormont.

Armagh city centre saw huge crowds gather in front of the library at Market Square, while hundreds congregated in front of St Mark’s Church in Portadown.

There were also rallies in Dungannon, Newry, Banbridge and Warrenpoint as well as towns across Northern Ireland.

The demonstrations were held to mark Northern Ireland reaching 589 days without a fully functioning government; equalling a record set in Belgium between April 2010 and December 2011.

The unwanted record of days will continue to grow as the impasse continues following the Stormont’s collapse on January 9, 2017.

The #WeDeserveBetter social media campaign is calling on the DUP and Sinn Féin to restore an administration as soon as possible.
