There was fun and laughter in abundance as staff and residents from Ballyclare enjoyed their Burns Day dinner. We piped the haggis in around the residents with Mrs Dorothy Burns and and Scottish Kirsty Stewart addressed the haggis
Robert Burns, also known as Rabbie Burns, The Bard of Ayrshire, Ploughman Poet and various other names and epithets, was Scottish poet and lyricist. He’s wildly regarded as the national poet of Scotland and celebrated world wild.
Residents and staff thoroughly enjoyed reciting the ode to a Haggis and informing all the dinner guests what the ingredients might be!
Here’s one that of course Rabbie said himself, before they all tucked in….
Some hae meat and canne eat-
and some wad eat that want it-
but we hae meat and we can eat –
sae let the Lord be thank it.
