More of a dialec than a language derived form Scottish settlers living in Northern Ireland.
Some bright wee prod realised that the catholics were getting EU money for speaking Gaelic and decided they wanted a piece of the pie too!

"The ultimate DIY language", as a local politician once eloquently put it.
A 'dialect' supposed to be derived from that of Scottish settlers who came to Ireland a long time ago, however it's actually not a language at all, and sounds laughably more like someone merely speaking slang words in a Ballymena farmer's accent..
Interestingly though, governments seem to be fooled by this quest for lingual recognition, and are happy to throw money at the cause ! Maybe they're just happy that they're doing something other than drug dealing and whacking each other for a change....
Ulster Scots:
"Ey boy, whers tha wife the day ?"
"ah... shi'll b back air at home wi tha waynes !"

English Translation:
"Hey mate, wheres your wife today ?"
"Aha, she'll be back there at home with the children."
