The Night We Burned Ardoyne is an Ulster loyalist song.

It refers to the events of August 1969 when there were large-scale attacks in Ardoyne, a now largely Catholic/Irish nationalist area in north Belfast, which saw many houses burnt out.

It is sung to the tune of Forty Shades of Green.

It has been recorded on CD by The Blue Notes and The Thornlie Boys.
