Monaghan Roots course : Invitation to tender

Clogher Historical Society (CHS) has issued an invitation to tender for the development, delivery and evaluation of two training courses for roots tourists. The course programme – County Monaghan - Home to the Little Hills – is expected to attract at least 150 participants and will be part of the County Monaghan Gathering.

The project will run from March to December 2013, with the training courses taking place in North Monaghan and Carrickmacross in September or October (Monday to Thursday) but promotional materials will be issued in mid-March so the full-course timetable needs to be finalised by then.

If you are interested in applying for the contract, see the official details on and follow the Attached Information - Documents link to view the full description of the project.

The CHS aims to promote the study of local history in the diocese of Clogher and to promote the area’s historical links with other places. As the diocese straddles the border, the CHS has a strong a cross-border and cross-community ethos. The project is subject to successful approval for funding through Cavan-Monaghan LEADER.

The deadline for receipt of tenders is 12 noon on Monday 11 February 2013.
