Event Details

Waterways Ireland in partnership with the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership, will be hosting a community outreach event. On this date the Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis at Queen’s University Belfast will provide an opportunity for the public to engage with their local history by sharing tales and folklore, as well as their memories and stories concerning selected spiritual sites around Lough Erne. Attendees are encouraged to drop in and share their memorabilia and photographs of these sites, along with any stories or folktales they may know.

Waterways Ireland in partnership with the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership, are seeking to collect and collate oral histories and heritage of key sites found on the shores of Lough Erne. Eleven significant spiritual and/or ecclesiastical sites have been selected to establish their trail of hallowed history. These sites include Devenish Island, White Island (North), Davy’s Island, Inishmacsaint, Caldragh (Boa Island), Cleenish, St. Ronan’s Aghalurcher, Galloon, Killadeas, Derryvullen and Tievealough. An integral objective of this project is to research and safeguard local stories and folklore connected to these sites; stories that only locals would know.
