New Ulster-Scots Badge for 2006

DID ANYONE see a recent BBC2 TV programme called A Dander with Drennan? In it, well-known Ulster-Scots storyteller and musician Willie Drennan looked at the links between Ulster and Scotland. His travels took him to parts of South East Antrim, an area rich in Ulster-Scots history, heritage and culture.

To celebrate these links between Ulster and Scotland, an excellent 18mm full colour enamel badge has been produced.

This beautiful badge features the well-known Ulster-Scots imagery - consisting of the Red Hand of Ulster and green Scottish Thistle. This is set against a brilliant white background. An outer black band reads Ulster-Scots around the top and 2006 around the bottom. This is a very striking badge indeed.

This fantastic badge costs only £2.50 (including p&p). To get your Ulster-Scots 2006 badge, simply send a cheque/Postal Order (made payable to Glenwood Publications) to: Glenwood Publications, First Floor, 316 Shankill Road, Belfast, BT13 3AB.
