Reminiscing about the Backstreets of Enniskillen – Facebook Live Stream on 23rd November 2021

Many of you over the weeks will have seen or indeed may have taken part, in the exciting archaeological dig in the Queen Street area of Enniskillen, previously known as the “Backstreets.”

The Lough Erne Landscape Partnership invite you to join via Facebook Live Stream on Tuesday 23rd November to learn more about the findings of the dig; to share your stories and memories and to celebrate Enniskillen’s “Backstreets” area and the people who lived there.

The online event will commence at 5.30pm with a series of talks on the “Backstreets”, commencing with Catherine Scott and Bernadette Layden, discussing the oral history associated with the streets. Brian Sloan will then present the results of the archaeological excavation, assisted by one of his star young local archaeologists from the dig. The celebration will then hear from the Fermanagh Genealogy Centre about their work on the association of the “Backstreets” with the Dardenelles campaign of 1915 during the First World War.

If you would like to join this event online please contact Heather Gott at heather.gott@rspb.org.uk or 07738 116385.
