Bonfires Are Prepared And Lit Ahead Of The Annual Orange Order Demonstration

BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND - JULY 11: A Loyalist climbs the Chobham street bonfire built in preparation for the 11th night bonfire on July 11, 2015 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Controversy surrounds the Chobham street bonfire due to it's proximity to houses with many residents having to leave their premises in fear of the potential heat and damage that the bonfire could generate. Local housing authorities have provided boardings for windows and doors to protect the houses from the flames. Tradition holds that the bonfires commemorate the lighting of fires on the hills to help Williamite ships navigate through Belfast Lough at night when Protestant King William III and his forces landed at Carrickfergus to fight the Catholic Jacobites, supporters of the exiled Catholic King James II. The bonfires also mark the beginning of the annual 12th of July Orange parades. (Photo by Charles McQuillan/Getty Images)
