As a journalist, the Twelfth week used to be a time of the year I dreaded, long days covering violence and unrest, attempting (not always successfully) not to get injured in the process.

The main parading disputes now all but resolved, or at least the heat taken out of them, means that in the last few years there has been no need for the hard hat, the 2am shifts at an interface, the destruction, violence and danger to often very young participants.
