A lot of happy memories Freda of 11th nights and 12th days. Memories come flooding back of many people who are no longer with us.i get more homesick at the 12th than I do at christmas.have a good one hope you are well.
Ironically, the 12th of July Battle of the Boyne/Cath na Bóinne, never really happened. !

Because,... it should really be,... the 1st of July parades,... because in 1752 when the British calendar was changed from the previous Roman Empire Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar,... and ironically of course, Gregory XIII was a Pope,... eleven days were added to the previous dates,.. so the 1st of July, the date on which the battle had really taken place on,... became the 12th of July.

In fact what is really being commemorated and celebrated,... isn't even the Battle of the Boyne/Cath na Bóinne,... it's really the Battle of Aughrim/Cath Eachroma,... which took place on the 12th of July 1691 under the Julian calendar,... which became 22nd of July under the Gregorian calendar.

It was the Battle of Aughrim/Cath Eachroma which had originally been the battle that was commemorated and celebrated annually, and on the original Julian calendar date of the 12th of  July.

Until the Orange Order was created in 1795, when the new Gregorian calendar was in use, and they combined the annual commemoration and celebration of both battles and used the date of the Battle of Aughrim/Cath Eachroma as the joint commemoration and celebration day.

However, in keeping with the custom of that era,... they used the original Julian calendar 12th of July date for the Battle of Aughrim/Cath Eachroma, as the date for their annual commemoration and celebration day.

Welllll, it is Ireland of course !  ::) ,... oops,... I mean Ulster,... oh no !,... I mean  Northern Ireland,... well anyway, it's a place that is somewhere to the left of the the United Kingdom,... well at least geographically if not politically.  ::) 

So,... "Remember 1690",...  should really be,... "Remember 1691". !  ::)

Oh no it isn't !,... it's really a place that is somewhere to the left geographically, of Great Britain, but so are the Republic of Ireland, North America and South America, and Canada,... oh !,... I give up. !  ??? ::)

Note,... No Belfast or Northern Ireland wall murals, or any lyrics of any traditional orange songs, have been damaged by the creation of this post,... or at least, I don't think that they have been. !  :)

Thanks for that james that was great. The sandy row parade was a church parade I think it was the Broadway prespreterian church parade which was always well attended and drew large crowds. I had forgotten how big the 12th parade was in those days even in the rain the crowds were huge.
  Hello Folks as I watched the 12th possession from Broadway Presbyterian Church every year It was a well attended crowed on both sides of the Broadway Road & both sides of the Falls Road I belong to the Broadway 2nd Life Boys there & went to Broadway Primary School , my  father marched every year in the parade I loved watching the parade I was so proud of him all my brothers went to Broadway Primary School & went to the 2nd Life Boys you know us all Jimmy .

That’s me home for awhile. Nearly 4 weeks away. Need to get my season ticket sorted for the new season and then I’ll head off to pastures new for another while.

We had a lovely time on the road.  So refreshing to get a break away.  Just a pity Dawson’s so young.  Just a boy really.
