Third Edition of ‘Oot an Aboot’ magazine...

24 June 2011

The Ulster-Scots Agency has published the next edition of the magazine ‘Oot an Aboot’. This is the third magazine to be published, and as with the first and second editions, members of the Ulster-Scots community played a major role in contributing the majority of the content for the magazine.

The first and second editions of ‘Oot an Aboot’ magazine were a huge success, with a total of 40,000 copies being distributed over a two year period.  A further 20,000 copies of the latest magazine have been produced – it has a new look and feel and a different format has been introduced, which includes colour coded sections covering ‘Community’, ‘Working with Others’ and ‘History and Heritage’.
