Join Dr Frank Ferguson as he explores the literary legacy of Ulster-Scots poets.

Dr Frank Ferguson from Ulster University explores the literary legacy left by Ulster-Scots poets during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Poets such as James Orr and Hugh Porter belonged to a group which created a rich heritage that has influenced twentieth century and modern-day poets including John Hewitt and Nobel prize winner, Seamus Heaney.
