Summary of the Exhibition


The exhibition explores many of the themes and historical events of significance from the past 250 years in County Donegal through original archives such as photographs, letters, posters, official documents, public notices, flyers, maps, plans, memos, notes and newspaper articles, all from the Donegal County Archives Collection. The purpose of the exhibition is to showcase the variety of interesting and attractive archival collections held by the service and to introduce archival material to as wide an audience as possible, including interested researchers, local people, heritage and history groups, teachers and students and visitors to the county. It aims to increase awareness of local archives and local history and demonstrate their inherent value.  

The exhibition is freely available for heritage centres, libraries, public service centres, museums, community centres etc., and there are two sets, one in English and one in Irish.
