Eleventh (11th) Night Bonfire - Coleraine - Yearly Ulster Protestant Celebration in Northern Ireland
The Eleventh bonfire night refers to the celebrations done on the night before the 12th of July in Northern Ireland and which is a yearly Ulster protestant celebration. On this night, there are different bonfires lit in many protestant/loyalists neighborhoods in Northern Ireland and which are usually accompanied by street parties.Along the years, this event has been condemned because of the pollution that is caused by the bonfires and because it usually displays sectarian and ethnic hatred and anti-social behavior. These bonfires are usually made up of wooden pallets and tyres and some of them sometimes reach high levels that might sometimes reach 100 ft tall.
