Ulster Covenant Book Launched

24 August 2012

‘The 100th Anniversary of the Signing of the Ulster Covenant’ by Gordon Lucy

On the 28th September 1912, over 470,000 men and women signed Ulster’s Solemn League and Covenant.  By signing they proclaimed that they would surrender neither their ‘civil and religious freedom’ nor ‘their cherished position of equal citizenship in the United Kingdom’.  Through photos and illustrations from the period, this book tells the story of that event 100 years on, and the determination and self-discipline aroused by the government’s Home Rule Bill.


The book is £7.99 and available from all good bookshops.  The book is also available from


Publishers Colourpoint will also have copies of the publication at the Broadisland Gathering in Ballycarry on Saturday 1st September – visit for further information.
