Orange Institution welcomes GB News announcement of live Twelfth coverage from Armagh
The Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland is delighted that GB News will give live television coverage to this year's Twelfth of July demonstration from Armagh.
Grand Master Most Wor. Bro. Edward Stevenson welcomed the news, which followed significant engagement.
Mr Stevenson said: "The announcement from GB News today that they will give live television coverage to the Twelfth of July parade from Armagh is very welcome indeed.
"Live coverage of the Twelfth is very important to so many people, particularly those who are unable to attend parades for a range of reasons.
"We were inundated with calls, many of them from older people who were concerned that they would miss out on this year's parades. So I am in no doubt that this announcement will come as a huge boost.
"The Twelfth in County Armagh is the biggest of all Twelfth parades and I'm confident it will make for an excellent programme. It will feature thousands of Brethren, Sisters and Juniors on parade and an excellent variety of bands.
"We are delighted to work with the GB News team and look forward to seeing the Twelfth covered live."
