I PERSONALLY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT. IN THE NORTH OF IRELAND. OR THE SOUTH OF IRELAND? AND I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFETIME HEARD IT SPOKEN & I’M 52-YEARS-OLD.
NOW THIS APPEARED ON THE BBC NEWS:
Ulster-Scots is a language which has been part of life here since the first Scots planters arrived in Ulster in the 17th Century. But more than 400 years on, it has become a sticking point in the Stormont talks.
In response to demands for an Irish Language Act, the UN-Democratic Unionst Party, DUP, Anti Irish, Anti-same-sex marriage, Anti-gay and not forgetting Anti-LGBT Party. Is calling on Ulster Scot’s to recognised in the same way as the Irish Language.
And they are not joking. Are they having a fucking laugh?
