Welcome by Portadown District LOL No 1
  It is a privilege and honour for the Brethren of Portadown District LOL No1 to welcome everyone to our official web site.

This web site has been developed to give information about our District, it's history and traditions and our plans for the future.

Portadown District is not just the first District in Co Armagh but it also holds the distinction of forming the first District Lodge in the history of the Institution back in 1796 - a year before the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland was formed in Portadown. Our District has over 900 members in 30 lodges.

2005 marked the 315th Anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne, Portadown District had the honour of hosting the County Armagh Demonstration and held a week long Orange Festival in and around the Portadown area. 80,000 people in total came to the 12th July parade and the week long festival activities.

Portadown District LOL No 1, commends this web site to all members of our Order and the public at large. We ask you all to visit regularly, check out the news section, read our history, learn more about our culture and become better informed about the Orange Order and Portadown District in particular.
