There was shockwaves sent around the republican community this week when news emerged that well known Camlough rebublican Liam Bradley has joined Bessbrook Loyal Orange Order District No.11.
Bradley a recently retired boxer in the box factory on the Warrenpoint Road has made the unbelievable switch from radical Irish republicanism to moderate loyalism.
Brother Bradley told Newry Spud:
“I had a dream last week. In that dream the late and great Dr Ian Paisley came to me and told me that it was now time to come to the other side to praise the Lord and spread the gospel.
I hope that I can keep my friends from the republican stronghold of Green Road but my time now is to be spent thinking of routes for upcoming marches that will preferably go through nationalist areas LOL.”
