Orange has form for failed causes

LIAM Clarke's article, headlined "Orange march 'boost for Yes vote'" (News, Sept 3), made me reflect on Orange support for failed causes.

Its leadership opposed the: Catholic Emancipation Act, disestablishment of the Church of Ireland, Third Home Rule Bill, Anglo-Irish and Belfast Agreements. Perhaps the headline, without the quotation marks, is a more accurate reflection of the present state of affairs?
