Hi everyone,
My name is Ronan Mc Connell and I am the coordinator of the new Raphoe Heritage Project. Funded by Donegal County Council and supported by Raphoe Community in Action, the project aims to promote Raphoe and the surrounding area as a tourist destination and to encourage the local community to get involved. Over the next year we will be carrying out a variety of activities in order to help achieve this aim:

• An historic photographic exhibition in a local venue
• A community art project
• Provision of training and classes for the local community in the heritage field
• A new website with photos, tourist information as well as written and oral history

In order to achieve these aims we need your help! If you have any photographs, stories or objects that you feel represent an important aspect of Raphoe’s Heritage that you would like to share and talk to us about let us know! If you are interested in participating in the community art project or in any of the training classes please get in touch with us.

Raphoe has a unique and proud heritage and we look forward to working with you to bring it to the fore. Please see the contact details below. We look forward to hearing from you.
