A sporting use for Ulster-Scots

Published 17/01/2012

It is pleasing to note that some of the TV sports channels appear to be making a serious effort to accommodate the aspirations of the under-valued Celtic languages.

In Sunday past's Heineken Cup match, Leinster's Sean O'Brien left the field close to the end of the match.

The caption beneath his name read "Sin Bin". As Leinster was playing against Glasgow, I assume that this was the Ulster-Scots translation of Sean O'Brien's name.
