Knocklayde Shorts

A series of four short films focusing on authentic Ulster-Scots speakers from North Antrim.
With the backdrop of the beautiful scenery of the Knocklayde mountain, each film shows a slice of rural life such as horse ploughing, sheep farming and how an Armoy summer scheme is helping preserve Ulster-Scots history, traditions and language for local children. With titles encapsulating the hamely tongue; There’s Nay Footerin Aboot on the Ferm, Keep a calm sugh laik a pig a ringin’, A neb on ye laik the cooter o a ploo and Ye need the help o the oul yins, each short film deftly weaves the rich nuances of the Knocklayde residents with their daily comings and goings.
