12th Castlecaulfield 2013

This year the main County Tyrone twelfth orange parade was held in Castlecaulfield, Dungannon, County Tyrone.

This demonstration was the largest in County Tyrone.

Approx 40,000 spectators attended and enjoyed the parade and the sunshine. No need to carry umbrellas this year. In fact it was that hot that only two or three Orangemen in the whole parade wore their jackets.

Orangemen and Orangewomen were comprised from seven districts - Killyman, Stewartstown, Cookstown, Castlecaulfield, Pomeroy, Coagh and Benburb.

Castlecaulfield last hosted the Twelfth 7 years ago.

There were approximately 70 lodges parading with 50 bands. The bands included pipe bands, silver, accordion and flute bands.

A massed pipe band representing the host district Castlecaulfield LOL No. 4, led the parade with 70 pipers made up from five bands from the district. The large number of pipers in the one band created a magnificent sound. They were followed by senior officers, all the County Tyrone Womens Orange lodges, and the various districts.

One lodge Aughintober LOL 38 had a new banner - the banner was created in memory of a former local lodge Fort Edward Cavalry LOL 677.

The parade left the assembly field on the Donaghmore Road at 12.30pm. Paraded via Donaghmore Road, Drumreany Road, Main Street in Castlecaulfield village, Hillfort Terrace and Reaskcor Road to the demonstration field in the glorious sunshine.

A religious service was conducted by Rev Mark Wilson, Guest speaker was Jim Emery, County Tyrone Grand Master.
