Heritage Week Events 2012

On August 7, 2012 by admin

National Heritage Week runs from 18-26 August this year and WIHH will be running a number of events throughout the week. As always, we will be offering our guided historical walking tours of Buncrana. Just turn up at the Coffee Cup at 2pm any day and ask for details.

We will also been hosting a number of lectures. The speakers and titles will be confirmed and updated here over the coming days.

We are pleased to announce that our first lecture will be on the fate of the Donegal Spitfire. Jonny McNee has written a book about his excavation of the spitfire which was preserved in a bog in Gleneely.

This should be a very interesting event and Johnny’s book will be available to purchase.

Johnny’s talk will take place at the Coffee Cup, Buncrana, at 7.30pm on Friday 24th August.

All are welcome to attend. This event is free of charge but donations to WIHH are very welcome.
