Glasgow is to be hit with a month of public processions after the council was notified of 14 marches in the next three weeks.

The plans come after a major police operation was launched at the weekend to deal with an Irish Republican march and Loyalist protesters.

Police confirmed over 1,000 people took part in the march, with 11 people being arrested - including a 14-year-old boy.

One police officer was injured and rushed to hospital after being struck by a firework but has since been released.

Now, it has emerged 14 public processions are to take place over the next three weeks, attracting an estimated 3,090 people over the course of September.

The largest of the marches is expected to be the Pride of Govan Flute Band, which will depart from Craigton Road with an estimate of 800 participants on Saturday, September 21.

On Saturday, September 14, four different groups are to walk through the city centre, including Bridgeton Protestant Boys FB, Pride of the North Flute Band, Republican Network for Unity and the Whiteinch Orange and Purple District, who will march from two separate locations.

In total, Saturday will see approximately 750 people take to the streets.

Glasgow City Council said they knew the marches were draining police resources and said they would consider the community impact in the future.

A spokesman said: “We want to thank the police for everything they did to ensure trouble was kept to a minimum on Saturday.

“But with 14 processions coming up this month alone, we know this kind of march continues to disrupt Glasgow’s communities and impact on policing outside the city.

“We will be very carefully considering that community impact when we receive notifications of processions in the future.”
