« on: June 07, 2016, 04:18:43 AM »
Do you say it in Cavan? Louth? Leitrim? Sligo?

Im fairly well sure no one says it in Meath Longford or Roscommon?

1/2 way between Carrickmacross and Ardee (hi) is what I reckon.

I would like to know when ulster scots was first invented (discovered)

Just seems to me that with the rise of Irish Language and the Irish culture in general there was a real need for the Unionists to have a 'Kulture' that they could point too other that than the orangemen and the glorious 12th. Low and behold we then find that there was ulster scots after all.  ???

Yep, thats exactly it...  Its all a foil for the Irish Language .. childish stuff but what can ye do...

It was part of the Good Friday Agreement .. Simple Trimble had a brain wave (which could have killed him  ::) ) and put a blocker in if this "Ulster Scots" thing wasnt included ... up until that point I can genuinely say I'd never heard tell of it before..

I actually signed up to their website a few years ago and asked them to suggest some good books for learning the grammatical nuances of Ulster Scots .. I never got a reply...  Obviously they were still trying to make it up at that stage .. cringeworthly  :o

Its a bit like the way Paisley used to try and claim Paddies day as "their" day .. and I noticed it happening again this year where lots of Unionists were claiming it .. Ruth Patterson, the genius that she is, claimed on the Talkback radio show that she believed St Patrick was a protestant  ??? .. the worst thing about that story is that its true  :-\ ....

They just cant abide the Fenians having something for themselves ....

It was pointed out to her at the time that he couldn't have been a Protestant as he was alive 1000 years before the reformation of the church ::) ::) ::)
 
But that's the level of intelligence and thought you are dealing with.

There should be some traces of ulster scots (aka scotch irish) along the east down coast i.e. Attical and Ballymartin
