PRONI: A talk, a tour and a boat trip

The Public Records Office of Northern Ireland has announced an unusual event on Friday 13 September.

First up is a talk on the Lagan Canal by Lorraine Bourke at 2pm.

The talk will be followed by a short tour of PRONI's Research and Reading areas, and delegates can apply for a PRONI reader's ticket, which will allow them to start their own ancestral or local history research.

They can then take a boat trip across the Lagan to join historians and presenters on board the Lagan Legacy Barge. The boat will leave the PRONI building at 3:30pm. The boat trip costs £5, and you need to book a seat with Lagan Boat Company on 028 9024 0124.

Parking: Limited on site. Available at the Odyssey Complex.
Admission: Free
