Another Slugger live report on the Apprentice Boys marches…

Earlier this month we pulled together a team of citizen journalists to report on the events of the Orange demonstrations in Belfast and at various sites across Northern Ireland. Now we are considering doing one for the Apprentice Boys of Derry celebrations, which falls on Saturday 8th August this year… Not sure what format it will take yet, but if you are about and happy to come along (possibly for the first time) and to watch and/or chat to ordinary folk about the impacts it has on the cultural and commercial life of the city, {encode=”mick.fealty@gmail.com” title=”drop me a line”}… And we’ll do our best to pull together something fun (and useful) for the day itself…
