In order to mark the Centenary of the signing of the Ulster Covenant on 28th September 2012, Loughries Historical Society are planning to host a special event.
Venue will be the Londonderry Room, Town Hall, Newtownards - the building where the Ulster Covenant was signed back in September 1912. Key note speaker will be special invited guest Drew Nelson, Grand Secretary of the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland with Jack Greenald local historian providing some historical facts. A 4 course meal will be provided with stirring music from Lord Londonderry's Own C.L.B. Band - with Piper Stephen Rodgers, they might even be a bit of fife and drumming!!
Loughries through our Council Representatives, have initiated a request to Ards Borough Council suggesting that they, (Ards Council) mount a commemorative plaque in the Town Hall N'Ards, to mark this vitally important and highly significant event in Ulster history.
