This project is being delivered by Bannagh Chapel Advisory Committee and aims to protect and preserve the original stained-glass windows in Bannagh Chapel which are in urgent need of repair to prevent drafts and leaks, which are already occurring.
Bannagh Chapel is located close to the shores of Lower Lough Erne and Boa Island where many of the congregation in the past came from. The building is a community building (only funeral masses are said) and is open every day. It welcomes many visitors and tourists as it is a part of local heritage and tourist trails.
The project will also involved local primary school which the chapel is already partnered with, St. Joseph’s PS in Ederney, for art and history projects, and with local tradesmen who will work with the contractor appointed to re-learn heritage skills. Local craftsmen and tradesmen are already involved in other aspects of work to the building including roof and floor repair. In addition the project will work in partnership with Ederney Community Development Trust and Kesh Development Association who will publicise the project, its aims and objectives and progress as well as outcomes.
