Happy Ulster Day!

Happy Ulster Day!

Ulster’s Solemn League and Covenant, commonly known as the Ulster Covenant, was signed by just under half a million Irishmen and women on and before 28 September 1912, in protest against the Third Home Rule Bill introduced by the British Government in the same year.

 

Sir Edward Carson was the first person to sign the Covenant at Belfast City Hall with a silver pen, followed by Lord Londonderry (the former viceroy of Ireland), representatives of the Protestant churches, and then by Sir James Craig.

We, their descendants, just as they were, are duty bound to defend our country and its people from any perceived threat to our way of life.
