The orange order is in a state of its long goodbye. The question is how do we protect the tradition of marching bands? The initial reaction within "nationalism" could be "so long and thanks for all the fish". This would be short sighted as we would be removing a possible source of tourism attraction. An annual circuit of weekend parades in different towns could be one way of keeping the tradition alive and if carried out in the correct manner a source of tourism for the towns in question.
