12th Of July

Jul 11, 2019
Orangemen on parade in Bangor

Celebration Of King William’s victory at the Battle of the Boyne

Wishing the Orangemen, Black men, Bands and followers a peaceful and glorious 12th of July.

May the parades be enjoyable and above all else hopefully the weather will be kind.

It is indeed a pity that our local tourist boards do not promote this event in celebration of civil and religious liberty in the same way as St Patrick’s day is celebrated. The loyal orders put so much effort into providing what is a spectacular display, much more could be done to take advantage of this unique day. Although many travel from around the world just to be here on this special day it is an opportunity that could be better promoted.

In any case everyone involved will have a great day as will we who watch from the sidelines. No Surrender!
