About us

Bready and District Ulster-Scots Development Association was formed in 2001 to promote an interest in the culture and heritage of the Bready area in north County Tyrone. The Association provides a structure for the Ulster Scots revival in the area, and cohesion for the groups listed below:

  • Bready Pipe Band
  • Bready Junior Pipe Band
  • Sollus School of Highland Dancing
  • Caledonian Connection
  • Bready Ulster Scots Historical Group
  • Bready Burns Club
  • Herbie McFarland Folk Four

In 2004 the Association successfully applied to the RDC under the EU Programme for Peace and Reconciliation (Peace II) for funding for a project to erect name stones at the boundaries of townlands along the public roads in the area. Townland names would thus be preserved and future generations would be aware of their existence and value to the local community. In addition, it was decided to create a website devoted to the history of the townlands of Bready and the families who lived in them.
