Pomeroy

The highest village in Northern Ireland will host the largest Twelfth parade in Co. Tyrone for the first time in 7 years. Orangemen from the Districts of Killyman, Stewartstown, Cookstown, Castlecaulfield, Coagh and Benburb will join with the host District, Pomeroy with upwards of 70 lodges and 50 bands expected.

The main parade will move off at 12.15pm from the Assembly point on the Tandragee Road and will proceed towards Pomeroy before turning into Station Road to the Demonstration Field. Taking pride of place in front of Pomeroy District will be a new bannerette bearing the names of the murdered Brethren of Pomeroy District.

This will be a lasting tribute to 8 members who paid the supreme sacrifice in defending Northern Ireland from terrorism and will also ensure that they will not be forgotten.

The religious service in the Demonstration field will be conducted by Deputy County Tyrone Grand Chaplain, Rev. Trevor Boyd and the Co. Tyrone Grand Master, Perry Reid will give an address.

The return parade will leave the demonstration field at 3.45pm.
