Orange Order members march at Rossnowlagh in County Donegal to celebrate the Battle of the Boyne.

The gathering of Orangemen from lodges in Donegal, Cavan, Monaghan, Dublin, Wicklow, Tyrone, Antrim and Derry marched one mile to Rossnowlagh village. Nine bands took part in the march. 

Their demonstration was celebrating the 254th anniversary of William of Orange's victory at the Battle of the Boyne.

Many of the participants will take part in similar marches across Northern Ireland on 12 July. 

There were some fears of trouble during the march and twenty Gardaí were on duty. However, the parade passed off peacefully.
