East Antrim Twelfth demonstration to commemorate Somme centenary

Orange Order brethren from Garryowen LOL 221 will make the
short journey to Randalstown on Tuesday, July 12 for the
annual East Antrim Combine parade.

Around 15,000 people are expected to line the streets for the
Twelfth demonstration, which gets under way at 11am at
Shane’s Street.

Staffordstown District No. 15 are the hosts and Worshipful
District Master Darren Richardson has said that the 100th
anniversary of the Battle of the Somme will be foremost in the
thoughts of brethren.

“It is a huge opportunity to recognise and commemorate the
sacrifice of the men who so gallantly laid down their lives in
France 100 years ago,” he commented.

Darren explained that the historical importance of the Somme
commemorations extend to the significant location of the
Twelfth field at Dunmore Park in Randalstown.

In 1914, following the declaration of war, Dunmore Park – part of the Shane’s Castle estate – was established as a
training camp for those setting off to fight for King and country.

This will be reflected with a First World War exhibition at Dunmore Park on July 12. In collaboration with local collector Gary Campbell, the exhibition will include various artefacts and memorabilia including uniforms, medals and a replica of a WW1 trench system.

The parade will go along Main Street, through Neillsbrook, onto the Portglenone Road to the field at New Street. The return parade will be at 4pm
