I know you're all dying with the anticipation, so here we go:

The 18 demonstrations on Friday, July 12, will be held in: Londonderry, Belfast, Glengormley, Carnlough, Ballymena Ahoghill, Magheragall, Rasharkin, Newtownhamilton, Bangor, Dundrum, Loughbrickland, Annalong, Ballinamallard, Magherafelt, Castlecaulfield, Donemana and Augher.

A Twelfth demonstration will be held in Rossnowlagh, Co Donegal, on Saturday, July 6.
And as for the city of culture

The Twelfth in Londonderry has been chosen – in this a showcase year for the Maiden City – to provide an enhanced cultural experience as part of the biggest annual festival in Northern Ireland.
Torn between our traditional Ballinamallard parade or Lononderry thsi year. Hopefully the weather will be good to us in Donegal, makes all the difference. Any Green p.iers going to take the plunge and risk life and limb?

Time to break in the new shoes!

Once they keep their parades away from flashpoint Catholic areas, no issue with this. Hope all have an enjoyable time out and it boosts the local economy.

It shows the inherent sectarian BS of these neanderthals that they want to hold parades at contentious areas and make CNRs 2nd class citizens for the duration of their hate-fests that they'd rather be heavily restricted and be provocative with their anti-catholic/Irish bile than do whatever the hell they want without restrictions in their own areas or on a beach or a back road

Why don't the Orange order hold parades in Monaghan and Cavan? Or do they and I am just ignorant of them?
some small church parades in Cavan, a lot of "picnics". It was the traditional pre 12th in my granddads time but it was moved to donegal. Monaghan as a few and a half decent sized one in Drum. Mostly Orange activities in those areas involve socials as opposed to parading. The Boyne parade is something that has potential to grow though it's the parade of just one lodge really.

That's right. My old man remembers them parading along his street. His grandfather was the local Landlord and built the Orange Hall there.

Its probably derelict or in ruins now.

Dunno if that is genuine.

That picture's URL is http://kkk.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/british-nationalism-in-ireland-racism-and-sectarianism-as-the-orange-order-celebrates-the-kkk-189x300.jpg

It is part of a collection of pictures
The full list of pictures is:Index of /wp-content/uploads/2011/09

Another picture from the same list:


There are definite genuine pictures on that list and definite fakes.
At a guess the older Black and White (sic) pictures are genuine but the newer colour photos are suspect.

It's genuine all right. It was doing the rounds online a few years ago when it was 1st published. I'll try and find the original which has the date on it too.

That KKK site is a site for research. It is not run by the KKK itself

That last one looks very photoshopped. The font on the writing looks as though someone's just done it on an early Windows PC.

I dont think the OO would tolerate the likes of Griffin.

"In 1989, he left the NF [National Front] and formed the International Third Position, a fanatically Catholic fascist group. The ITP campaigned against Coca Cola, McDonalds, urbanisation and “Zionism”. His involvement did not last beyond a few years."
