SOUTH ARMAGH PROVOS CAUSE DEATH OF ORANGE OSSIE




The drowning of "Orange" Ossie Bradley in a lake in British Occupied Ireland, highlights the need to deal with the issue at Stormont, a highly paid British politician said yesterday, after Oswald Bradley died when he drowned, while swimming in Bessbrook Pond in Co Armagh the previous evening. It is understood he was trying to swim out to a small island to remove two Irish tricolours, the flag of Ireland that had been hanging on trees.The erection of the flags in the village earlier this month, caused tension in the Orange Order and upset Provisional Sinn Féin, who called for people like Orange Ossie to remove them.

"I think the action that he undertook yesterday was probably uncharacteristic of him, from what I hear from friends and he was provoked by the Provos. said a friend. "Bessbrook is a mixed community, Catholics and Protestants live side-by-side and generally speaking down through the years, community relations have been very good. Mr Bradley was a member of Orange Willie Frazier's FAIR. FAIR's chaplain Barrie Halliday said he "loved" the union flag and displayed it at his house.

Some people say, it was totally out of character but maybe Flegger issues had been playing on his mind and it was just something he couldn't stand any longer - a tricolour being up over the village. Last week, Mickey Brady of Provisional Sinn Féin said tht the Irish tricolour could be seen as intimidating Protestant residents in the village. He said the Irish flag could be considered by some as "overtly sectarian, intimidating and threatening.The issue is one that is causing contention because obviously, in Bessbrook particularly, there is a mixed community," he said. Brady now says that the "community is in shock".

Orange Willie Frazer wrote on his Facebook page, that Orange Ossie was a member of his group and said, he drowned “whilst performing a selfless act of citizenship in Bessbrook,” Mr Frazer said. Mr Bradley had been attempting to remove to tricolours and replace them with union jacks. Ulster Unionist MLA for the area Danny Kennedy said Orange Ossie’s death was a “real tragedy. This is a very tragic outcome to controversies surrounding flags in this village. This is too high a price for any family and community to pay.”

The Matter is the subject of a rather heated debate on Facebook on
Cait Trainor's Page.

Anita Cavlan If the sinn fein councillor hadn't asked for their removal the pensioner likely wouldn't have gone near them to replace with union flags

Adele Cain I don't think we should be mocking, I just think it is important to not advocate for or empathise with colonial agents, however hard that is for us as obviously caring people driven by empathy. I mean we know we care for all people and every tragedy h...See More
