An Eleventh Night Bonfire on the Fountain Estate Derry/Londonderry. 11th July 2018. The Eleventh Night refers to the night before the Twelfth of July, a yearly Ulster Protestant celebration. The bonfires are lit to celebrate the ‘Glorious Revolution’ of 1688 and victory of Protestant Prince, William of Orange over Catholic King James II at The Battle of The Boyne in 1690.
The Fountain is home to approximately 250 Protestants. 10,000 Protestants fled the city's West Bank, to the suburbs during the troubles.
