We recently enjoyed a lovely visit from a Summer Scheme youth group from Ballybeen to our #UlsterScots centre, Reivers House in #Kilkeel!

During their visit, the boys and girls enjoyed learning about our Ulster-Scots Language and were also treated to Highland Dance workshops!

As part of the β€˜Festival of 15’, our Chairperson Gareth Crozier has been busy contributing to their story telling events by sharing local stories & myths in #UlsterScots!

This has been an great opportunity to give new people a better understanding of our Ulster-Scots language!

Some great photos of the boys and girls at our Summer Scheme in #Kilkeel who enjoyed taking part in our #UlsterScots drama throughout the week!
