The traditional Glasgow Clubs parade for the Relief of Derry takes place on the weekend following the Londonderry Commemorations and was organised by Possilpark Murray. Thanks to Michael Falconer, Secretary, for all his work to make the day a success, along with all those who played a part in making the day a success. Following the Parade the Parent Club Secretary enjoyed the hospitality of Possilpark at their meeting Hall.
The Relief of Derry Commemorations on the 12th August was an exceptional day with an impressive turnout from Members.
The celebration of the 334th Anniversary of the Relief of Londonderry started on the other side of the world with the meeting of Australia Murray in Sydney, New South Wales, a little earlier this year, 29th July, with some travelling to be with us in Northern Ireland. At the special initiation meeting on the Friday evening before the big day, we had one Member made from Australia, accompanied by two Australian Brothers. Luke Williams was one of a dozen who were Derry Made that evening.
The newly Made were able to enjoy the main Commemorations on Saturday 12th. Ballinran Flute Band lead General Committee, while once again we had the Robert Graham Memorial Flute Band, from Crawfordsburn in its 50thAnniversary Year, lead the Murray Parent Club.
Donemana Murray celebrated the Coronation of King Charles III with a Service and Parade at the end of July. A new picture of the King was dedicated for Donemana Orange Hall.
