The Glorious Twelfth!

Not quite yet, there's another month until the grouse shooting season gets under way, but the commentation of another glorious day, the Battle of the Boyne!

With "Google-ing" and a big day in both countries on the island of Ireland though probably more so in rump Ulster and for different reasons than in Eire.

Nothing in the MSM that I've seen though which is a shame.

The Loyalist processions are things to be seen, experienced and heard. The Lambeg drums alone are worth hearing!

Great. I bet. Nice to see they are not killing each other much anymore and all! That can only be a good thing I guess.

I can't say I like the taste of grouse much, but have no objection to grouse shooting if that is what turns one on.

Re: The Glorious Twelfth!

What an extraordinary thread.

My google calendar tells me it's Battle of the Boyne day wtf is that? I can't get rid of it nor the scottish bank holiday on Mon 5th August.

Battle of the Boyne day ... bbc news showed a war zone, folk throwing molotov cocktails at a gigantic pile of pallets, done in the name of culture. What is wrong with these people?
