About 50 Orange Order lodges have taken part in the annual parade in the County Donegal village of Rossnowlagh.

The march comes before the annual 12 July celebrations in Northern Ireland, marking the 1690 Battle of the Boyne.

Orangemen from Northern Ireland took part in the parade.

They were joined by lodges from Cavan, Leitrim, Monaghan and the host county, all in the Republic of Ireland.

The demonstration made its way along a one-mile route starting just outside the village, before a religious service at the field.
