Looking across the narrow sea
Yesterday on his blog, Bloggin fae the 'Burn, (clydesburn.blogspot.com), Mark Thompson posted a photograph showing the clear view of the Scottish coast from his own front door. By coincidence, as I was going into work yesterday, driving down the hill section of the M2 towards Greencastle, I could see the Scottish coast from there as well. The sea between Ulster and Scotland is certainly a 'narrow sea'.
Is it any wonder that, as the historian G M Trevelyan once pointed out, the connection between Ulster and Western Scotland has been a 'constant factor in history'?
