    In recognition of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Liam Logan takes a run down the Ards to hear Coronation memories collected by Portavogie Culture and Heritage Group. In the harbour, the large fishing fleet was decorated with red white and blue bunting, and lucky folk got to see the big event on tiny black and white tellies.

    Wilbert Magill has a rhyme about Scrabo Tower in Newtownards.

    Laura Spence reports from Tyrone where a WF Marshall Study Event was held last month.

    Ian Parsley tells Liam about Ulster-Scots place names and Scots place names.
