This Culture Night on Friday the 18th of September, Central Library (Letterkenny) and Europe Direct Information Centre presents a programme of history and Heritage.


Behind the scenes in the Library


Staff at the Central Library Letterkenny have spent the last 30 years gathering every article, book and author associated with Donegal into one library, we call this the Donegal Studies Collection. During this short tour, you will learn about the resources we have available for you to trace your Donegal ancestors or research the history of the county.

See a snapshot of Donegal as it was, from Mícheál Ó’Cléirigh and the four Masters to poteen making in Inishowen. The lives of Isacc Butt to Daniel O’Donnell and the changing landscape of the county from the first ordnance survey maps of 1835 through to the new A5.

This tour will run every 20 minutes with a maximum of 5 people.

Strictly Booking only, no drop-ins please. Social distancing and masks will be worn at all times.
