A woman was injured and several people are understood to have been arrested after police moved in on a Republican Sinn Fein event.
The ‘colour party’ held in Lurgan was an Easter Rising commemoration.
Footage online showed heated scenes between the PSNI and those attending the event at the Edward Costello Memorial Garden in the Kilwilkee estate.
DUP MLA Carla Lockhart praised the actions of the PSNI.

She said: “I very much welcome the police operation to stop this illegal parade and glorification of terrorists.
“I hear plenty of comments from republicans on legal Orange parades but they are strangely silent when republicans decide to march whenever they want glorifying terror in an illegal march.

“It is good to see a robust operation to prevent this illegality rather than a follow up arrest operation some weeks later. I congratulate the PSNI Commanders who authorised this operation and the officers on the ground who implemented this plan so effectively.”
