Leaflet for the meeting

The Alternative Ulster Covenant was a declaration launched at a public meeting in 1913 in reaction to the Ulster Covenant of 28 September 1912. The original Ulster Covenant, signed by just under half a million men and women from Ulster, protested against the Third Home Rule Bill, introduced by the British Government in that same year.[1] The essence of the Alternative Covenant was to dispute the anti-Home Rule assertions made by the Ulster Covenanters. The movement is notable because it was a largely Protestant organisation, at a time when the vast majority of Protestants were anti-Home Rule.
