Orange Walking Glasgow

Don't see them much now, probably banned because of Covid. Came across this Wee walk near the Barras.

I was out with a couple on my cycle tour when I heard the distant sound of the flute and drum. "ever seen an Orange Walk"?

So off we went and there they were marching towards Glasgow Green. Playing to empty streets. No mothers in prams or raucous drunks dancing alongside, almost civilised. I suppose what they originally stood for is now lost to most. This little bunch of Christian worshippers showing their defiance to Roman Catholicism.
