"The A-list Burns Club" ('Scottish Daily Mail' - November 24th, 2009)
In 1781 Robert Burns worked in Irvine.
In Irvine Captain Richard Brown encouraged Burns to publish his
verse. The published poet was born! The late Sandy Macara was of the opinion
that "Irvine is also where Burns caught the rheumatic fever that
caused his death"!
