Shownotes

The 12th of July is a holiday across the 6 counties of Northern Ireland. It is the day that many celebrate by participating in marching bands, having barbecues and enjoying the holiday with their families in different ways. In this episode we look at the arrival of the Scots in the counties of Ulster - and the subsequent "first migration" in the 18th century to the colonies of north America where they eventually became known as "Scotch-Irish". We also look at the rise and (gradual) fall of the Orange order in Ulster. All accompanied by lots of music and chat along the way. Enjoy!
