Project 20: Memory Map of Lough Erne

The digital memory map will be an archive, reference tool and a valuable resource for locals and visitors to engage with Fermanagh’s history and heritage.

Project 20: Memory Map of Lough Erne

This project aims to record the history around Lough Erne, using a digital platform to tell its story, which will link histories, stories, maps, photos to various locations around Lough Erne.  It will depict the built, social and cultural heritage around Lough Erne.

Volunteers will be recruited and trained in oral history recordings, archiving and digitisation, to assist with the capturing of memories, stories and artefacts.  Throughout the project, photos, stories, reminiscence will be recorded and added to already existing information (audio recordings, video/tv footage, photos etc.), bringing it under one umbrella.

There will be a series of awareness raising and digital roadshows organised throughout the County giving locals an opportunity to share their history and heritage, which will be retained for future generations. 

We will shortly being inviting suitability qualified individuals/organisations to tender for the delivery and development of the memory map project.
