Traditional Skills of Ulster

A collection of lost skills and traditional crafts

The UTV Archives are full of beautiful clips of lost crafts and skills. Everything from making trout flies to forging spades. These films are reminders of our lost past and testimony to the talented men and women who dedicated their lives to keeping tradition alive.

Sadly, so many of these crafts are now lost but we treasure this footage which allows us to remember our recent ancestors and the roots of Irish culture and tradition.
