Thousands of members of the Orange Order are in Donegal today for their annual pre-12 July gathering at Rossnowlagh.

Lodges from counties Donegal, Cavan, Leitrim and Monaghan, as well as Orangemen from Northern Ireland, will be taking part in the event.

Orangemen have  held an annual march in Rossnowlagh every Saturday before 12 July since 1978 and it is the only parade of its kind held in the Republic of Ireland.
