12th Of July Parades – Aghalee

A taste of the 12th of July celebrations which are being held in our village this year. Feel free to ask questions. It’s all about history and culture and stuff….

What do you know about the 12th July parades in Northern Ireland?

Is this what you expected?

Published by Fractured Faith Blog

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. Is it in part aimed to rub the Catholics’/Nationalists’/Republicans’ noses in it? All that bashing of lambeg drums, playing flutes and squeezing accordions?

  2. I recently bought my mate from East Belfast a wee rubber ball. Every time it bounces on the ground, it goes, “Boyne! Boyne! Boyne!”


  3. Thanks for posting. Iโ€™ve always wanted to go to Ireland but I wasnโ€™t sure what part. And I never really understood the issues or differences with Ireland and Northern Ireland. So I researched it a bit, but I didnโ€™t really picture it like this.


        1. When I say Ireland I mean it to say both Ireland and Northern Ireland. Not being from there I guess in my mind I see them as one not two.
