English: Dollysbrae Road. On July 12, 1849, Orangemen march from Rathfriland to Tollymore Park in County Down, Ireland to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of Boyne, where William of Orange defeated the Catholic King James II of England. While passing through Magheramayo, which was predominantly Catholic, the group exchanged shots with a number of Ribbonmen. Ribbonism was a strongly Catholic Irish independence movement loosely associated with areas of Ulster and northern Connacht. The Orangemen proceeded to attack Catholic houses within the town, and roughly 30 Catholic people were killed. The event was subsequently known as Dolly's Brae. This incident led to the Party Processions Act. On the 12th July 1849 the Orange Lodges of Ballyward District had visited Tollymore Park to honour the 4th Earl of Roden who was the Grand Master of Ireland. The Lodges turned homewards in procession through Bryansford, leaving Castlewellan by the old county road which now forms the southern boundary of Castlewellan Forest Park.
