Orange Carnival? You bet!

Visiting US Lodge including the Rev Paul Zahl an Episcopal Bishop who were being filmed for a documentary by a US TV Crew.

Quite alot of negative posts regarding the Twelfth celebrations – some rightly so. The flag with “Micky Bo” springs to mind. However to most folks in the Protestant community The Twelfth is the highlight of the year and in the majority of locations is a peaceful family day out. I have been out and about with my video camera and managed to capture events in Rossnowlagh on the 8th and Magherafelt on the 12th including a visiting US Orange Lodge from Birmingham, Alabama. It can be and should be a family day and a tourist attraction.
