Plantation of Ulster Study Visits: Year 9

As part of the Year 9 study of the Plantation of Ulster, pupils take a guided tour of Hill of The O’Neill where they find about the significance of this site that had once been the medieval capital of Ulster. On Hill of The O’Neill, the pupils meet a living history character from the early 1600s who has experience of both the Nine Years’ War and the Plantation of Ulster.

The pupils then pay a visit to our permanent exhibition on the Flight of the Earls and Plantation of Ulster. There they watch a filmed interview by Dr William Roulston, an expert on the Plantation of Ulster, before making use of specially created resource booklets in their exploration of the exhibition.
