Burns Night

Today is the birthday of one of Scotland’s most famous sons, poet Robbie Burns, the Bard of Ayrshire.

He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and his birthday today will be celebrated by Scots all over the world in a tradition that goes back hundreds of years.

Dave Kerr, from the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh, has been celebrating Burns night for as long as he can remember as he shared with Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton
