Ulster’s great poet, Sir Samuel Fergusons grave refurbishment

During the month of October our members worked to refurbish the grave of Ulster’s great poet, Sir Samuel Ferguson.



Sir Samuel Ferguson was best known for his poems on the Red Ranch Knights and Congal Claen and came from Ulster Scots grandparents.

We twice cleaned the sandstone surround and metal railings around the grave as well as refurbishing the marble plaque. The pathway and steps to the grave has been power washed and treated to remove moss and staining.

We also removed the churches protective plate glass before cleaning the centuries old stain glass windows and replacing the glass as new. All windows in the church were professionally cleaned

A fitting tribute to a great Ulster scholar in this ancient St Johns Church in the middle of Dalaradia.
