Twelfth 2016 Aughnacloy: Adherence to God's Word core message

The crowds at yesterday's Clogher Valley Twelfth in Aughnacloy heard from guest speaker Canon Mark Watson, Co Fermanagh Grand Chaplain.

Speaking at the demonstration field at Aughnacloy College, Canon Watson spoke of the importance of following God's Word.

"This is especially important for those of us who occupy positions of authority in homes," he said.

"The child must be brought up to love God and shown right from wrong."

Twenty-five lodges from two districts - Annahoe and Fivemiletown - were on parade yesterday and, maintaining a long-held tradition, a number of lodges from neighbouring Co Monaghan also took part.

Among the musicians stepping out at the close-knit Tyrone demonstration was Murley Silver Band, who recently attained fourth place at the European Brass Band Association Championships in France.

Also on parade was the distinctive sound of the Brian Boru pipes, played by Glenageeragh Pipe Band.
