An estimated 30,000 Orangemen, women and juniors have stepped out at 17 Twelfth venues, with crowds across Northern Ireland reaching an estimated 250,000.

The events mark King William of Orange's victory over James II at the Battle of the Boyne in Ireland in 1690.

LIVE: Twelfth of July Orange parades in Belfast

Posted by Belfast Telegraph on Thursday, July 12, 2018
 

Some 8,000 were expected to take part in the longest parade in Belfast alone. On Thursday morning, the parade through Ardoyne was held. North Belfast MLA Nichola Mallon said she was pleased it passed off peacefully.

For the main parade in the city a wreath-laying ceremony took place at the City Hall cenotaph and the parade then proceeded along Bedford Street, Dublin Road, Shaftesbury Square, Bradbury Place, Lisburn Road, Balmoral Avenue and Malone Road to Barnett's Demesne in south Belfast.

The largest parade was at the birthplace of Orangeism in Loughgall as the institution marks the 328th anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne.

The parade passed the Museum of Orange Heritage at Sloan's House, where the Orange Institution was founded in 1795 following the Battle of the Diamond, located on the outskirts of the village.

Other significant parades took place in Londonderry, Brookeborough in Co Fermanagh, Ballyclare in Co Antrim, Donaghcloney in Co Down and Stewartstown in Tyrone.

Breaking with tradition, over 1,000 Orangemen from Mourne District joined their neighbouring brethren at the Newcastle demonstration.

The Grand Master of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland, Edward Stevenson, hailed the annual Twelfth of July celebrations as a “day to remember”.

“The 328th anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne will be remembered as a perfect day for the extraordinary numbers of people celebrating the largest annual festival in Northern Ireland," he said.

“The favourable weather conditions added to the sense of occasion; as tens of thousands of our members, accompanying bands and spectators revelled in the pageantry and spectacle of the Twelfth at 17 different venues across the Province.

“There was an enhanced international flavour, with many visitors taking part in our parades, and many tourists sampling the carnival atmosphere."

Grand Master Stevenson said that the Lodge were delighted to welcome a wide spectrum of visitors to the day's events.

“We were delighted to welcome all those experiencing their first Twelfth, including representatives from our own Government and the Irish Republic; Secretary of State, Karen Bradley, and Tourism Minister, Brendan Griffin; along with many others. The Orange fraternity of Co Armagh were also thrilled to be in the company of former Irish rugby international, Brian O’Driscoll, who excelled himself on the Lambeg drum. Such developments are to be commended and highlight the broad and growing appeal of our cultural traditions," he said.

“I trust everyone involved - participants, supporters, onlookers and traders - had a wonderful day; and we look forward to doing it all over again next year.”
