Kiltyclogher and Cashel Heritage Project Launch

A series of maps and heritage films will be launched at the Closing Event of the Supporting Kiltyclogher and Cashel Communities Peace IV Project this Friday July 19th in Kiltyclogher Community Centre Co. Leitrim at 2.30pm.

The maps and films are the result of a 14 month cross border heritage project that has been taking place in Kiltyclogher, Co. Leitrim and Cashel, Co. Fermanagh. The Closing Event will also feature a drama performance by local young people based on the William Allingham poem, The Fairies.

There are 24 short films of stories told by local people including reminiscences about their schooldays. Each story is linked to a location on an online map of the area and will also be included in the Sligo-based mobile application, Storytracks.

Large, colourful maps of the area created by artist Laura McMorrow with primary schools in the area, will also be exhibited and there will be historical and heritage maps on display.

The project was funded by the European Union’s Peace IV Programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB)

Kate McCarthy called into The Francie Boylan Show to tell us more and play some of the audio from the project.

The Francie Boylan Show airs weekdays 11 – 2pm
