Dangers & annoyances

July 12th marks the 1690 victory of Protestant William of Orange over Catholic James II at the Battle of the Boyne. Although the Marching Season is technically from Easter until September, the months surrounding July 12th have historically seen some violent clashes between Protestant and Catholic groups. Just to be safe, keep a far distance from any Orange Marches.
