Exhibition: Volunteering In The Community and Volunteering in Heritage.
This Culture Night, visit Donegal County Museum to view the winners and entrants of the Donegal Volunteer Centre, the Donegal County Museum and Donegal News Photographic Competition which celebrates Volunteering in the Community and in Heritage. Amateur photographers were invited to submit images of volunteers at work anywhere within County Donegal. Donegal County Museum created the ‘Volunteering in Heritage - John McDermott Memorial Award’, to recognise and highlight the extraordinary contribution that volunteers within local museums, heritage centres and organisations make to 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.
