Aughlish Ulster-Scots - "Home of Ulster-Scots culture in Scarva"
| Aughlish Ulster-Scots Group was established in 2003 by a number of enthusiasts belonging to Aughlish Cultural Society who recognised that the term Ulster Scot more accurately reflected their heritage and identity, The group meets monthly in Aughlish Orange Hall, Scarva and organises a varied programme including, tuition classes, lectures relating to Ulster-Scots Culture, History or Heritage and commemoratory or celebratory events.
Our aim is to promote awareness of the cultural heritage of the people of the Ulster Scots community in the Scarva area and to provide opportunities for participation in cultural activity ensuring our culture retains its place at the heart of the community. As our slogan says we are proud of our past but we are also forging our future.
Membership is open to all those who subscribe to the groups aims and objectives and pay an annual subscription. Classes and events are open to everyone whether a member or not. As part of our community outreach programme and emphasising our commitment to the social life of the village we organise events in the Community, Church and Orange halls within Scarva.
We are always pleased to welcome new members either to the group itself or to any of the classes or events. If you would like to join us or get involved in any of our events we would love to see you. Why not come along and enjoy the crack. For forthcoming events please visit our News and Events Pages.
