Making the most of every opportunity by watching the July 12 parade in Belfast

The timing for The New Saints playing Linfield FC in Belfast couldn’t have been better.

Yesterday I was able to take in the July 11 celebrations here but today was on another level.

With some free time after breakfast and before lunch, I walked to the end of Donegall Pass where the July 12 parade passed.

Commemorating the 1690 Battle of the Boyne victory for William III against James II, the outcome meant that Protestant ascendancy was secured for Ireland.
