Tens of thousands of Orangemen will parade tomorrow in demonstrations across Northern Ireland for the annual Twelfth commemorations.

Around 50,000 Orangemen and band members are expected to attend 17 Twelfth demonstrations organised by the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland.

In Belfast, lodges from nine districts and some 90 bands will make their way from Clifton Street along the six-mile route to the field at Barnett Desmesne.

This year's three flagship events are to take place in Limavady, Markethill and Larne.

Orangemen from the border counties will gather in Irvinestown, while the north Down demonstration is in Newtownards.

Elsewhere in Co Down, there are parades in Gilford, Kilkeel and Clough.

Orange grand master Edwin Stevenson will be the guest speaker at Dungannon, while Omagh and Ballygawley also play host in Co Tyrone.

The Co Antrim venues are Broughshane, Ballymena, Ballinderry, Cullybackey and Ballymoney.

Orange Order director of services Dr David Hume said: "The Tourist Twelfth Flagship programme has been developing since 2006 and we have seen excellent parades and festivals over the years.

"This year we are enhancing our product through training in the World Host programmes for the institution's flagships. In addition, we also want to work closely with the flagships to ensure that the best possible product is offered for visitors and tourists.

"The three areas which have been selected this year reflect geographical and historical diversity and their parades will all be excellent, as will other festival plans.

"We look forward to working with them and wish them well in all their efforts."

Orangemen and women from Sandy Row will lead this year's Twelfth parade in Belfast. As is traditional, the parade will leave Belfast Orange hall at Carlisle Circus, at 10am.

The procession will make its way along Clifton Street, Donegall Street, Royal Avenue, Castle Junction and Donegall Place to Belfast City Hall.

A wreath-laying ceremony will take place at the Cenotaph in the grounds of the City Hall for those killed in both World Wars.

Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster said: "The flagship concept is aimed at those parades that want to broaden their appeal to draw a tourism audience and I am sure that those involved in the three selected demonstrations will provide a diverse and vibrant programme of events that visitors can enjoy.

"The colour and pageantry of the Twelfth is enjoyed by tourists from far and near and I hope many of them will take the opportunity to visit Limavady, Markethill or Larne to enjoy the spectacle of these flagship events."
