‘They Sailed from Londonderry’ Book Lunch Thursday 27th June 2013 11.30am

New book charts city's Ulster-Scots emigration history
A fascinating new book detailing the emigration of many of the local Ulster-Scots population from the city throughout the 18th century will be launched by historian and journalist Billy Kennedy this week.

Supported by the Culture Company and the Ulster-Scots Agency, the book was written to mark Derry-Londonderry's City of Culture year, focusing on one of the most fascinating chapters in the city's history when the city was a main port for the emigration of Ulster-Scots Presbyterians to America.

‘They Sailed from Londonderry' follows the epic journey made by thousands of Protestants from the North West who left the city's docks to seek a better life across the Atlantic.
