Be proud of Ulster-Scots Heritage and Culture, Swann urges Community

1 Mins read

Mr Robin Swann, the North Antrim Ulster Unionist Party Assemblyman and member of the Stormont Public Accounts Committee, has called on those in the community who herald from the Ulster-Scots tradition “to stand up and be proud of your rich Ulster-Scots heritage and culture”.

Assemblyman Swann, the UUP Chief Whip and a long-time campaigner for and participant in the Ulster-Scots pipe band scene, issued his appeal after taking part in an event to mark Community Relations and Cultural Awareness Week.

Assemblyman Swann added: “Having enjoyed – and continue to enjoy – many wonderful years and experiences with the Ulster-Scots pipe band scene, I issue this heartfelt appeal to the Ulster-Scots community – not just in North Antrim, but right across the Province – stand up and be proud of your rich heritage and culture.

“The republican community is constantly trying to ram its so-called heritage, culture and rewriting of history to suit the Sinn Fein agenda down the throats of the pro-Union community and indeed everyone else in Northern Ireland.

“But we from the Ulster-Scots tradition have equal rights too to tell the community about our culture’s very positive contribution to society in Northern Ireland. It is time for the Ulster-Scots community to really stand up and be counted,” said Assemblyman Swann.
