Orange Lodge

According to today's 'Herald' there is still an Orange Lodge in Campbeltown. If so, it must keep a extremely low profile. Can anyone enlighten me?

I think they meet or used to meet in the town hall. Usually see a few of them in the Kilbrannan bar after their meetings.

I see in today's (Friday) Herald that there is to be a major Orange Order parade "in Argyll" tomorrow. I read on to see where this is to be held and find that it is in Helensburgh.

Helensburgh may now be within the Argyll and Bute Council area, but it is not in Argyll, as it is part of the old Dunbartonshire.

Incidentally, I see that the Orange Order has registered with the Electoral Commission as a participant organisation in the Independence Referendum, and they will be campaigning for a No vote. This should give a good boost to the Yes campaign. :roll:

Why would that give a boost to the Yes campaign. :?

According to the Helensburgh Advertiser the Orange walk last Saturday went off without major incident.....
