There is newspaper, published currently, called The Ulster-Scot. It claims to be the "Ulster-Scots Agency (Boord o Ulster-Scotch) official publication." In the October 2004 paper, I noticed a small article mentioning Ahoghill, which some listers have been discussing, so I will type it into this email. Meanwhile, if you are interested in more info, or learning how you can receive this paper, you can go to www.ulsterscotsagency.com. There are photos and articles, even a few written in Ulster-Scots.

Frederick Buick's Ahoghill
The strongly Presbyterian area of Ahoghill, Co. Antrim, was long familiar with the Rev. Frederick Buick (1811 - 1908) of Rose Cottage, Glenhue, writes Dr. Eull Dunlop.
The father of the Rev. Dr. George Raphael Buick of nearby Cullybackey, Buick was the son of a Scot from Arbroath, who had migrated to Navan, Co. Meath. Ordained within the seceding wing of Presbyterianism, Buick settled in Ahoghill in 1835.
His long-life as minister of the Second (now Trinity) Congregation was written up, circa 1901, by another son, Dr. David Buick of Larne. Like his ministerial brother, the latter was historically interested, not least in Presbyterian communion tokens.
Sections in the work of filial tribute deal with early seceding history in Mid-Antrim; with the union of the Synods in 1840, with the 1859 Revival, especially as it touched Ahoghill, with Buick's ministerial brethren; with social conditions; and with family and 'freens', of whom there are valuable photographs.
Prefaces are written by Christopher Raphael (London) and the Rev. Dr. Harry Uprichard (Ahoghill). Appendices include accounts of the funeral of the patriarch who baptised, married and buried so many.
Buick's Ahoghill is available at £6.95 inc UK post from Mid-Antrim. Historical Group, c/o 69 Galgorm Road, Ballymena, Co. Antrim, BT42 1AA. It is the first of a trilogy of works on the distinctive district.
In the same paper is an article entitled:
