PETER Swindon's report (Bloodshed, drunkenness and triumphalism: the Orange Order on the streets of Scotland, Eyewitness, July 2) on the Orange Order parades that took place over last weekend contains a statement to the effect that some march supporters were drinking Buckfast straight from the bottle as the parades marched past.

Buckfast is made by Catholic Benedictine monks in Devon as a registered charity whose charitable purpose is the advancement of the Catholic faith.

While I find the monks' brew something of an acquired taste, am I alone in seeing a delicious irony in this?
