The People and Language of Larne

Over the years, Larne has produced a host of citizens who have gone on to make names for themselves in various walks of life - sport, literature and acting are only a few. Here are some short tributes and more will follow as details become available.

The people of Larne have a rich language that is unique to the town with variations in the rural areas around it. Part English, part Ulster-Scots, the language is being eroded generation by generation and in the not too distant future, will be gone forever. If we don't hold onto this vital essence of our heritage ourselves, who will?
