Apprentice Boys of Derry

The Associated Clubs of the

Campsie

A Club with this name had been in existance almost 100 years earlier, but ceased to operate in 1869. The Campsie Club is the only Apprentice Boys Club to be named after one of the "Brave 13". It is persumed that Henry Campsie was the first man to shed blood in the Defence of Londonderry.

 

Campsie was the inspiration behind the Shutting of the Gates, and was severly wounded whilst leading his associates to secure the City Magazine and armoury.

 

The emblem of the Roaring Meg was adopted as the Seal of the New Club.

 

The Campsie Club has now an active, energetic core of members and officers, who in the past few years have encouraged the growth of the Association by opening new branches, not only in Ulster, but also in England and Scotland.

 

Most recently the Campsie Club have opened a new Branch in East Lothian, Scotland, known as the East Lothian Campsie Club.

 

The Charter for the new Club was installed by the Lieutenant Governor, Bro. Graeme Stenhouse and officers of the Parent Club on 12th September 2015.

The Campsie Club is the youngest of the eight Parent Clubs, having been reformed and presented with a New Charter on the 23rd January, 1950.
