The Apprentice Boys Relief of Derry Parade In SFW Pictures

by | 14th, August 2010

NO sniggering at the Apprentice Boys Relief of Derry parade in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. This is serious stuff and must not be tinged you’re your sticky fingered adolescent sense of humour.

The Apprentice Boys parade passed peacefully on the Ardoyne Road in North Belfast this morning.

The parade commemorates the thirteen young Apprentices who closed the gates of the walled city, a Protestant stronghold, to halt Catholic King James’ army in 1688. A siege endured. It lasted 105 days.

(No paedo priests were involved…)
