 Today, tens of thousands of Orangemen and supporters are set to attend Northern Ireland’s Twelfth of July parades.

 The largest demonstration of the day will be in Belfast and there will be 17 main venues across six counties.

 The Independent Orange Order demonstration will be in Portrush in County Antrim.

 Sinn Fein President, Gerry Adams said:

 “I would once again appeal to people over the coming days, in spite of provocation and in spite of the continued insistence of the Orange Order to march in areas where they are clearly not welcome, to remain calm”
