2018 Ulster Project of Utah Events

By Dave M The Hibernian Blog • June 20, 2018


This will mark the 33rd year of the Ulster Project in Utah.  For those not familiar with the Project, Northern Irish teens; six Protestants and six Catholics, are paired with twelve Catholic & Protest Utah teens for the month taking part to break down decades of religious & political division in Northern Ireland.

We do hope that you’ll join us as we help to promote peace, harmony & acceptance by welcoming the teens from Northern Ireland & attending some of these fun & exciting events. Picnic will be held at pavilion #4 at Murray Park.
