    Default Peter Robinson to give 'The Edward Carson lecture: reflections on Irish Unionism'

    PETER Robinson will be marking the centenary year of the Ulster Covenant by delivering a lecture in Dublin.

    The First Minister will be speaking at the Department of Foreign Affairs’ Iveagh House headquarters tomorrow.

    Robinson to give lecture on Covenant - Local - Belfast Newsletter

    The archive of the Ulster Unionist Council, held by the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), contains just under half a million original signatures and addresses of the men who, on 28 September 1912, signed the Ulster Covenant, and of the women who signed the parallel Declaration. In total, the Covenant was signed by 237,368 men, and the Declaration by 234,046 women.

    Shows you where we are when I thought it was going to be Mary Robinson that was giving that talk. I suspected we were going to be treated to the monumental contribution Belfast Lace had made to the prosperity of the country ever since the 17th century.

    Yesd, from the thread title I really thought it was about Mary Robinson.

    Look forward to reading it - Carson was the greatest Irishman of the 20th century IMO - those of us on this side of the border - protestant and RC - owe him so much.

    Yes, we should be eternally grateful he set up a Protestant government "for a Protestant Province" and, of course, the UVF.

    Do you agree with that poster that the UVF were right and a Protestant Province/Government was a just arrangement?
