Thousands of people descended on Donegal on Saturday to enjoy the sunshine at the annual Rossnowlagh Orange Order parade.

Around 50 lodges from both Northern Ireland and the Republic took part in the parade ahead of the Twelfth of July celebrations next week.

Affectionately known as the 'Donegal Twelfth' the event always attracts a big crowd to the seaside location.

Donegal county grand master David Mahon told the BBC that good community relations exist in Donegal.

He said he wanted the Orange Order to continue to have a positive relationship with the rest of the community.

Mr Mahon said the Donegal lodge continued to grow by welcoming new members every year.

Many of the Donegal brethren will join their northern counterparts to mark the anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne next Friday in parades taking place across Northern Ireland.
