'Red Hugh' - an ancient Lambeg Drum

An antique Lambeg drum named ‘Red Hugh’ has been lovingly restored by Trevor Young of Randalstown, and reporter Eunan McConville finds out more about its cross-community appeal. (Broadcast: 16th March 2011)

The drum once belonged to the 22nd Division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians based in Randalstown. Martin Hamilton talks about the drum, which is now over 100 years old, and remembers how the local Orange Order would borrow the drum for their own events.

Brian Johnston of the Caddy Orange Lodge also tells Eunan about the restoration of the drum.
