This photograph appeared in the local Newspaper a few years ago and a friend of mine bought it for me - As you can see I am a lot younger.
I think this was taken in Holywood back in 2003 - 7 years ago! The crowd seem to be enjoying the noise of the lambeg, as we make our way through the crowded streets - No better place for a bunch of Orange Lilies than on the front of a Lambeg Drum.
The chap drumming with me is Neil Gordon - one of the well known drumming family the Gordon's from Newtownards. Neil is an excellent drummer and a pleasure to drum along with, sadly Neil is unable to drum now due to an injury he sustained in a motorbike accident.
