The Orange Order has said it plans to return to its traditional Twelfth in 2022 after hailing this year’s celebrations a “great success”.

The big annual demonstrations had been cancelled in 2020 as a result of the pandemic, and this year’s were more intimate, with hundreds of smaller parades taking place in towns and villages.
