Edward Bruce 700
The connections between Ulster and Scotland date back millennia. The story of the campaign in Ireland led by Edward Bruce (brother of King Robert I) of 1315–18 is one of the most important early examples of shared Ulster-Scottish history. Though the story may have largely slipped from the popular consciousness, historians have long recognised that the Bruce campaign in Ireland was an event of far-reaching significance.
In conjunction with the Ministerial Advisory Group – Ulster-Scots Academy and the Ulster-Scots Agency we are proud to announce the release of a heritage map and booklet which covers 20 sites in Ireland and Scotland (10 in each) linked to the Bruce campaign in Ireland and the places associated with this forgotten but hugely important event in Irish-Scottish history.
Both these publications are available FREE! (plus p&p) from our online bookstore at:
