New ‘Heroes from the Heartland Book’ Publication


When considering the definition of the word “hero”, it is worth consulting the dictionary to get a concise meaning for the word. Having done so, I offer you the following dictionary definition:

“a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal”.


Contrary to common belief, a hero or heroine does not necessarily need to be famous and, as this publication will show, he or she is seldom rich. People from humble backgrounds have achieved worldwide renown whilst others have committed a remarkable feat only to disappear from the pages of history, if they had ever appeared there at all.

This publication is dedicated to the heroes and heroines of the Ulster Scots people of north Antrim. They lived in Ulster yet their names, habits, customs and lineage all point to roots in the Scottish motherland. Some of those mentioned in the book may only have a brief chapter but the quantity of written material should not be used as a gauge to determine the magnitude of their particular feat. It may simply be because history has all but forgotten them. You may never have heard of some of those featured but that is all the more reason to read on and learn more about incredible feats of courage, strength and resolve that made those whose stories you will read about here, heroes and heroines from the heartland.
