The 332nd Annual Relief of Derry Commemorations

The 332nd Commemoration of the Relief of Derry took place on the 14th August 2021. While more than the 30 who took part in August 2020 due to Covid regulations, the Association continued to be cautious and reduced the main Parade in Londonderry to the General Committee and eight Parent Clubs. The colour and spectacle of thousands of Apprentice Boys with banners and bands on the main Parade wasn’t to be. The gallery is accessed by the link on the title, and a slightly longer post adding some video is available on News & Updates.

The 332nd Annual Shutting of the Gates Commemoration

The 332nd Annual Commemorations of the Shutting of the Gates took place with even greater restrictions on organised events in the context of the on-going Covid-19 outbreaks. The Murray Club, in turn on custom rotation among the eight Parent Clubs, has responsibilities for the traditions of commemoration in this year (December and August). The events maintained the traditions, albeit reduced from the thousands participating a smaller number. The gallery is accessed by the link on the title, and a slightly longer post adding some video is available on News & Updates.

The 331st Annual Relief of Derry Commemoration

The 331st Annual Commemorations in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 was like no other, and hopefully will be the last of its kind for many years to come. This Gallery follows the way in which the Apprentice Boys of Derry adapted in the circumstances. The President, Bro. Gordon McMorris, and Treasurer, Bro. John Goligher, represented the Murray Club as the two representatives to join with Officers of General Committee and other Parent Clubs to take part in a respectful, albeit very much smaller, commemoration.
