The Parades Commission issued a statement on Wednesday to say it was aware of the concerns - both about the band and displays of inappropriate material - and would be examining complaints.
"Neither of these parades were considered contentious and therefore the Commission had made no determination upon them," a spokesperson said.
"However, all parades are covered by our Code of Conduct which sets out clear expectations of proper behaviour and prohibits inappropriate displays."
The Commission may now write to the organisers and invite them to respond to the matters raised.
East Londonderry DUP MP Gregory Campbell said he had raised issues about hunger strike commemorations in Dungiven last year and that the problem should not have re-occurred.
"The failure of the Parades Commission to deal with this matter, while taking a contradictory stance in dealing with Loyal Order parades, is totally undermining their role in adjudicating on the parades issue," Mr Campbell said.
In the wake of the parade on Sunday 5 August, TUV leader Jim Allister said it was a serious matter which needed proper investigation.
He said: "IRA supporters appear to have been bussed into Dungiven from all over Northern Ireland and the Republic to celebrate the exploits of a terrorist."
"The fact that a minister in the Stormont Executive - Michelle O'Neill - addressed this event, while Martin McGuinness took pride of place in the parade, raises serious questions for their partners in government."
