Understanding the Ulster Covenant

The Ulster Scots Community Network (USCN) are an organisation that promotes and develops many aspects of the Ulster Scots Tradition through, advice & guidance, booklets & publications historical talks, lectures etc.

The booklet that I have been given to read, is one of their most recent publications, in fact a full box made their way to Bangor on Thursday -this booklet is titled 'Understanding the Ulster Covenant'.
In 2012 we plan to celebrate the centenary of the signing of the Ulster Covenant - a local and highly respected politician described this historical occasion as the 'Birth Certificate of Northern Ireland' - at an event that I attended back in July, and I strongly agree.

Loughries, with the help of a few local historians and writers, will produce a publication similar to this booklet, however concentrating on a local angle 'The Ards' In fact Loughries plan a series of events in 2012 to commemorate this significant event in our history - again more on that later!
