Loyalist Communties Council Launch

Dalaradia is proud to have been involved in the Loyalist Communties Council since day one of the initiative, which has been in preparation for the past 18 months. We as a group welcome these positive steps and fully support both the initiative, and the drive towards a fuller, lasting peace that it represents.

“We accept the democratically expressed will of the electorate, however a vacuum in loyalist communities has been created which has led to significant disenchantment with politics, and to our communities being largely ignored and neglected.

“It is no coincidence that the attainment levels of working class loyalist young people are the lowest in the UK.

“It is our desire to make a meaningful contribution to reversing this situation, to give our young people hope for the future, and to help bring structures which will improve our communities and protect our culture.”
