    Orange Day Parade

    Each year on July 12 the Orangemen hold a parade. People gather to listen to religious and political speeches.

    Orange Day is the anniversary of the Battle of Boyne. The trouble began when James II lost his throne to William of Orange. Each side raised an army and fought on the banks of the Boyne River. The Orangemen won the battle but the Catholics formed underground societies to try and restore James to the throne.
