HUNDREDS of Orangemen from the Carnmoney, Cloughfern and Sixmilewater Districts will be hoping for glorious weather as they head to Randalstown on Tuesday for the annual East Antrim Combine Twelfth of July parade.

They will join brethren from the host District, Randalstown, as well as lodges from Larne, Antrim, Carrickfergus, Staffordstown and Killead for what will be the largest Twelfth demonstration in Co Antrim.

A total of almost 70 lodges, including ladies from the Women’s Institution, along with several junior lodges from throughout the East Antrim area will be on parade during the cultural event, which has been selected by the Grand Orange Lodge as a ‘Flagship Twelfth.’

See this week’s paper for details on the Twelfth day arrangements.
