Kesh Branch Club was “re-born” on 15th February 2012 in Dromard Orange Hall with the presentation of the new Charter by Governor Bro James Brownlee with Lt Governor Bro Ronnie Mc McCausland in attendance.
After an absence of over 50 years 3 members Bros Ian R Smith, Ian W Smith and Gary Wilson decided it was time that the Crimson colours were reinstated in this part of North Fermanagh and took on the task of reforming this Branch Club. Thirteen members are proudly recorded on the Charter,
These 13 hopes the club will go from strength to strength in the coming years
The club attracts a wide range of ages from all parts of Fermanagh, the club meets on the fourth Monday bi monthly in Dromard Orange Hall on the outskirts of Kesh village.
The club now boasts 36 members with new members being accepted on regular basic; members include Students, Elected Representatives, Postmen, Farmers, Labourers, Tradesmen and Professions. In our ranks this wide ranging membership in this club shows the desire to honour and up hold the proud tradition of the Defenders of Derry from 1688-1689
The Branch club made the decision to continue to carry the original standard as carried over 50 years ago, The standard is approx 100 years old and made a welcome return at the Relief of Derry Celebrations in 2012 leading a very proud Branch Club around the historic route accompanied by North Fermanagh Young Defenders Flute Band with many club members playing in it.
