Wilson Burgess meets Sam Fletcher from Glenmaquin in County Donegal to hear some of Sam’s poems.
Elsewhere, the plans for Derry ~ Londonderry UK City of Culture 2013 are developing, and Wilson hears what Ulster-Scots input is proposed for the big year.
There’s news of North Sea Gas coming to Larne with their special blend of Scottish music, and as the ‘Burns Season’ of 2011 draws to a close, Wilson drops in on what’s promised as ‘the ultimate Burns experience’.
