Exhibition: ‘Colmcille - Man and Myths’

Offline

Donegal County Museum invites you to join them for the official opening of its new exhibition ‘Colmcille -Man and Myths’.

Saint Colmcille is one of the most important figures in early Christianity and 1500 years after his birth we still celebrate his memory in pilgrimages, stories, poetry, music and books. But what do we actually know about Colmcille?

This exhibition will take you on a journey to discover Colmcille’s story in Donegal and Derry and will try to separate the man from the myth. It also features family friendly elements, so visitors both young and old can explore the story of the Saint.

Exhibition: ‘Volunteering in the Community and Volunteering in Heritage Photographic Exhibition’

Offline

Join Donegal County Museum to view the entrants and winners of the first Donegal Volunteer Centre and Donegal County Museum photographic competition which celebrates Volunteering in the Community.  Amateur photographers were invited to submit images of volunteers at work anywhere within County Donegal.

Donegal County Museum created the ‘Volunteering in Heritage – the John McDermott Memorial Award’, to recognise and highlight the extraordinary contribution that volunteers with local museums, heritage centres and organisations make to County Donegal’s history and heritage. This award was created in memory of the late John McDermott, who as a volunteer, over many years, took hundreds of photographs of archaeological and historic sites across County Donegal.
