Description

Spirited scenes from the annual celebrations as Orangemen and their supporters parade through streets festooned with traditional flags, banners and bunting.

The hamlet of Benburb and city of Belfast provide contrasting backdrops for the 12th of July celebrations. In Benburb, small pockets of people gather in the doorways of houses to watch as marchers and bands journey to the local Orange Hall. In Belfast, huge crowds gather in the city centre and along the Lisburn Road, as the parade makes its way along the traditional route.
