Life in the Workhouse Living History Tours
Step back in time this Culture Night and hear the stories of those who worked and stayed in County Donegal’s Workhouses during the Revolutionary Period. By using the records preserved in the Donegal Archives Service, visitors to the Museum will meet the Master and Matron of the Workhouse, as well as some of the inmates of the Workhouse in the final years of the system. You will meet Frances Campbell, a Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers soldier who returned shell-shocked from WWI and Mary Breslin who gave birth to her son James in the Donegal Workhouse in 1920. Tours take place at 6.15pm and 8.00pm.
