BBC News - Loyal orders' economic impact in Northern Ireland '£15m per year'Loyal orders and their bands contribute £15m to the Northern Ireland economy annually, a new report suggests.
The figure included spending on regalia, uniforms, instruments, bus hire and other services.
The report put the value of provision of facilities, community and volunteer work as well as fundraising for charities at an additional £39m a year.
The report was compiled for the Department for Social Development by RSM McClure Watters.
The cost of policing Northern Ireland parades last summer was estimated to be £7.4m.
Not much to say, the figures surprise even me...
