‘Moving Tributes’ event at Brownlow House

Updated: Nov 7, 2022

The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland will be hosting a special display of banners and drums as part of this year’s Orange Victims’ Day events.


Brownlow House in Lurgan will be the venue for ‘Moving Tributes’ which will feature a display of banners and lambeg drums which are tributes to members of the Orange Institution and others who lost their lives to terrorism since 1921, many relating to ‘The Troubles’.


The event will be launched on Orange Victims’ Day - Thursday, 1st September - and will run through to Saturday, 3rd September.


The Grand Master, Most Wor. Bro. Edward Stevenson, has appointed Assistant Grand Master Wor. Bro. Mark Smyth to co-ordinate the event, and he has issued an open invitation to all members of the Orange Family and the wider public to come along and see the display.


“This exhibition is a fantastic tribute to the 339 murdered brethren and one sister who we remember each year as part of Orange Victims’ Day,” he said.


“I would encourage everyone to come along – and bring your families - to see this exhibition and learn about the sacrifice made by many members of our Institution and the other Loyal Orders, often in defence of the liberties we enjoy today.”


Entry to the exhibition is free.


Opening times are Thursday, 1st September - 12 noon - 9pm; Friday, 2nd September -10 am - 9pm; Saturday, 3rd September -10 am - 4pm.


Catering for groups is available during the exhibition and can be pre-booked for groups by contacting Brownlow House on 028 3832 6049.
