Frances Calvert in Tynan Abbey, Co. Armagh - 10 July, 1822

from Journal entry, 10 July 1822, page 363:

A party of Orangemen marched through here to-day—colours flying, drums beating and playing tunes most offensive to the Catholics. They were ornamented with orange lilies, ribbons, etc., to commemorate the Battle of the Boyne: it is a shameful practice.
