The Dunleer & District Historical Society have organised a great-looking Heritage Week!
It starts this Thursday 5 July and continues to Sunday 8 July with a series of lectures, exhibitions and tours. Some are free while others make a small charge.
There's also a Genealogy Workshop with Alan Hand scheduled at Dunleer Library on Saturday between 11am and 1pm. This will be an introduction to the methods and means of tracing ancestors and family roots. While the event is free, places are limited so advance booking is essential. To book your place, please contact Muriel in the Dunleer Library (041 6861270).
Dunleer & District Historical Society was formed only a few months ago. To find out more, and to see the full list of events, see their website at www.midlouthhistory.com.
