Ulster-Scots Agency - Hub

A new Ulster-Scots Hub and Discover Ulster-Scots Centre was opened on 27 November 2014 at the Corn Exchange building at the Victoria Street / Gordon Street corner in Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter, providing a one-stop shop for all things Ulster-Scots.

The Ulster-Scots Hub – for the Ulster-Scots Agency, the Ulster-Scots Community Network, the Ulster-Scots Language Society, the Ulster-Scots Library and Archive and the Ulster-Scots Academy Ministerial Advisory Group all now in the one building – is at 31 Gordon Street.

The Discover Ulster-Scots Centre, its public entrance on Victoria Street, has an exhibition area highlighting the many ways in which Ulster-Scots culture, history, heritage and language has shaped Ireland and the province of Ulster in particular. The exhibition covers various themes including the Hamilton/Montgomery settlement in North Down, the 1798 Rebellion, American Presidents with Ulster-Scots connections, and the arrival of Presbyterians in Ulster.

Details of a number of organisations with Ulster-Scots connections are on display including the Presbyterian Historical Society of Ireland.

Why not drop in to view the exhibition in the Discover Ulster-Scots Centre at the Corn Exchange, 1-9 Victoria Street, Belfast.
