Lord Laird: He will be missed at the Twelfth
John was truly one of a kind and was highly respected by his fellow Orange brethren across the city and beyond.
His absence will be certainly felt at this year’s Twelfth, but no doubt John will be with us in spirit such was his love for the Institution.
The thoughts of the entire Orange fraternity of Belfast are with the Laird family.
Spencer Beattie, Belfast County Grand Master
