Heritage Week 2018 – Thank You
Thank you to all who supported our Heritage Week events. We had a full house for the unveiling of the 1907 Fenagh Townland Map and Book – the map is on permanent display at the Visitor Centre and copies of the book still available at 10 euro.  Whilst the weather didn’t work in our favour for the guided tours thanks to all who braved the rain and came along and a big thanks to Nicola Kearns for being the tour guide again this year. We also had a successful Bell Ringing Workshop at the Church of Ireland and the new Peace Garden is now completed at this church and is well worth a visit.
