4000 Years Of Ulster Scots

Ulster-Scots was included in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement under the principle of support for “linguistic diversity”. This mural celebrating Ulster-Scots and ties between Northern Ireland and Scotland dates to 1999. “4000 years of Ulster-Scots history and heritage. Ulster & Scotland – shared language, shared literature, shared culture.” 400 years takes us back to the plantation; 4000 years suggests an even deeper connection. “Dinnae houl yer wheest, houl yer ain!” [Don’t hold your tongue, hold your own!] Templemore Street, Belfast
