1995 was the first summer of peace in Northern Ireland – except for the small market town of Portadown. There, in defiance of the wishes of the Catholic residents of the Garvaghy Road, the local lodge of the Protestant Orange Order insisted on their traditional march down the road on the way back from their annual church parade at Drumcree. The subsequent yearly stand-offs have gone down in political history and are chronicled in this comprehensive and absorbing study.
