Haggis Hurling & a Burns Supper?

The birthday of the great “Scottish Ploughman Poet”, Robert Burns (1759-1796), on the 25th of January, is celebrated around the world, including the much anticipated, annual haggis hurling competition at the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Alloway, Ayr, Scotland.

There won’t be any haggis hurling, but at this year’s celebratory tribute to the life, works and spirit of Robert Burns at Liam Flynn’s Ale House, 22 West North Avenue in Baltimore, on Monday, 25 January, there will great live music, poetry readings, whiskey tasting, and a delicious dinner of haggis, neeps & taddies, kale salad, and cranachan.

The event will have the same wonderful feast, bagpiping, and traditional music it’s known for, but there are a couple of special additions to the evening this year.

First, readers may know of the iconic ferries that carry passengers and vehicles between the Scottish mainland and the islands.  Caledonian MacBrayne (Caledonian Mac a’ Bhriuthainn), known now as CalMac Ferries Ltd, is the major ferry operation in the Hebrides.

This year the Address to the haggis will be read by Cal-Mac Ferry Captain Cameron MacLeod.
