As the days go by Greater Ardoyne seems to be expanding. We are often told that it is residents who protest against Loyal Oder parades and band parades but it seems that isn't quite true.
If those involved in protests and riots on the Crumlin Road back in July were residents of Ardoyne or even Greater Ardoyne, then Greater Ardoyne has certainly expanded. It extended across parts of North and West Belfast, then up to Ballymena and on to Londonderry. Now with the addition of Spain, Greater Ardoyne is going international! Who knows where it will extend to next? Perhaps it will end up like the British Empire, of which it was said that it was an empire 'on which the sun never set'.
