Before it passed unremarked about, the last of the summer’s big
Orange Loyal Order marches, took place on Saturday without any significant disruptions, (apart from the Armagh/East Tyrone demonstration) of the Royal Black Preceptories. The ‘Blackmen’s’ Parade in Donegal, the first since the 1930s passed peacefully in Raphoe. Maybe some of them spent the rest of the weekend chilling at the Fleadh Ceoil up the road in Letterkenny?
