20/06/22 Colmcille 1500th Celebrations Coming to a Close

 

An informal event is being held in St. Colmcille’s birthplace to mark the end of Colmcille 1500 – a programme that has been commemorating 1500 years since the birth of the 6th century saint.  The programme has been jointly delivered by Donegal County Council and Derry City & Strabane District Council - supported by the North West Development Fund as well as a range of other partners and funders. 

 

The event will take place on Monday 27th June at 2.30pm in the Colmcille Heritage Centre in Gartan, County Donegal, and will include the launch of a small souvenir booklet to mark the celebrations. Dr. Brian Lacey, historian and Colmcille expert, will also share some reflections of the year as a very fitting wrapping up of the programme.

 

Places are limited so booking is essential. If you are interesting in attending please check availability by emailing [email protected] or phoning Deirdre Harte on (00 353) 087 246 7424.
