Orange Order youngsters to take part in Larne parade

By Staff Reporter

The junior section of the Orange Order will hold its annual Easter Tuesday demonstration tomorrow in Larne, Co Antrim.

The main parade, organised by Belfast Junior County Lodge, will commence from the Circular Road at 12.30pm and proceed through the town centre to Sandy Bay playing fields.

Officers and juniors representing three Belfast districts, Larne, and a number of other lodges from across Northern Ireland - accompanied by seven bands - are due to participate.

Among the senior Orangemen to attend will be junior grand master Roy Nixon.

The return parade is due to start at 3.30pm.

Next year, the junior association will celebrate the centenary year of the annual event with a parade in Belfast.

The first Easter Tuesday demonstration took place in Holywood in 1919.
