David Trimble deserves praise as a peacemaker, but he made a grave mistake with Brexit

David Trimble was wearing the sash and was talking about rights when I first met him. It was during marching season in Drumcree, and the Orangemen insisted on walking what they put the Queen’s Highway, including crossing the nationalist Garvaghy Road.

It was a scorching hot July day in 1997 and locals were herded into their homes by riot police. Some local residents had managed to reach Garvaghy Road for a sit-in protest against the parade but were forcibly removed. Meanwhile, security forces were en route, Orangers had gathered by the thousands, loyalist paramilitaries were stoking tensions, and the stage was set for a confrontation.
