Sam Carrothers of Lisbellaw

In Fermanagh, the Ulster-Scots community believes the Plantation of the 17th century really began in 1610 and not 1609 like the rest of Ulster.

In an old graveyard, Helen Mark talks to Sam Carrothers from Lisbellaw who has had a lifelong interest in where his family and the ‘planted’ families of Fermanagh came from. (Broadcast: 31st January 2010)
