    BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND - JULY 9: A Loyalist youth climbs a large bonfire construct in preparation for their 11th night bonfire at the New Mossley estate on July 9, 2015 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The New Mossley bonfire is considered by many to be the biggest in the province this year. Tradition holds that the bonfires commemorate the lighting of fires on the hills to help Williamite ships navigate through Belfast Lough at night when Protestant King William III and his forces landed at Carrickfergus to fight the Catholic Jacobites, supporters of the exiled Catholic King James II. The bonfires also mark the beginning of the annual 12th of July Orange parades. (Photo by Charles McQuillan/Getty Images)
