Success of the Intergenerational Events about Vernacular Buildings

Written on . Posted in .

As part of our School Heritage Project, students in the local areas of Kesh, Lisnaskea and Belleek have been researching buildings and interviewing members of public about their experiences living in Vernacular buildings (Pre 1919).

We were thrilled by the work produced by Kesh PS, St Ronan’s PS, St Ninnadh’s PS, The Moat PS, St Davogs PS, St John the Baptists PS and Belleek Controlled PS on their study of vernacular buildings in the Fermanagh area.

Big thank you to all of the speakers, and those who provided stalls for the event, including;

– Glenn Moore, living in a thatched cottage

– Joe O’Loughlin, Keenaghan Cottage

Caroline Maguire, HED, Senior Architect

– Bryan Gallagher and Bryan Og, Ceili and Storytelling

– Knocks People Community Enterprise, Scythes and Scythe stones

– Florence Creighton, display of traditional home life

– Lisnaskea Historical Society, bookstall (Old Lisnaskea Past & Present)

– Kieran MacMahon, Grandson of McMahon Spade Mill Founder

Thank you to the 7 volunteers who spent this afternoon assessing the work from our Heritage Schools Project – Studying Traditional (Vernacular Buildings).

LELP is delighted to have worked with teachers and children from P6 & P7 classes across Co. Fermanagh, to researching traditional buildings and the social history connected to them.

This project has been made possible thanks to the funding support from the Department of Communities, Historic Environment Division.
