The Lough Erne Landscape Partnership (LELP) invites you to join us at the virtual launch of our exciting new two-year engagement programme – Legacy of Landscape: The People and Heritage of Lough Erne on Thursday 19th May at 7:30 pm, with guest speaker Ciaran McMenamin – Fermanagh native, author and actor. This event will explore our new project, which is focussed on discovering, celebrating and preserving the culture and traditions of the Lough Erne region, both past and present.
Supported through funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Community Foundation Northern Ireland, this project will be delivered in collaboration with the Centre for Community Archaeology (CCA) and the Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis(CDDA) at Queen’s University Belfast. The initiative focusses on the built and cultural heritage of Lough Erne, and volunteers can enrol to get access to a suite of FREE ‘at home’ learning opportunities where they can develop and learn new skills and share valuable stories, capturing and promoting the unique and special heritage of the Erne’s landscape and communities. For further information on the project please click here.
Please join us to hear more about our project on Wednesday 19th May. Our guest speaker, Ciaran McMenamin, will treat us to a reading from his latest book The Sunken Road, in addition to excerpts from his 2017 novel Skintown, sharing with us how the landscapes of Lough Erne have influenced his writing. Amongst musical interludes from Fermanagh singer songwriter Sean Magee, we are also delighted to be joined by Professor Eileen Murphy, Professor of Archaeology at the School of Natural and Built Environment at Queen’s University Belfast, who will provide more information about the innovative work we will be undertaking around Fermanagh.
