Members of the 28th Battalion will shares their lives and stories with the public as part of the ‘How We Remember’ series running at the museum.
Admission to this unique event is free and it promises to be a very touching occasion.
Meanwhile the hugely successful ‘How We Remember’ exhibition, which honour’s the Irish Defence Forces, and in particular, the men and women of the 28th Infantry Battalion in Donegal, is closing on the 30th June.
The exhibition is a unique opportunity to explore the history and role of the Defence Forces in Donegal, and in particular the role of the soldiers as peacekeepers, both in the Republic of Ireland as a border Battalion from 1973 and abroad on UN missions.
It contains images, oral histories, uniforms and equipment, as well as the Rockhill Remembered documentary for the visitor to explore.
Schools and community groups are welcome to visit – it might be a perfect part of a June school-tour! A bright, easy to use education booklet has been produced to accompany the exhibition.
This project is supported by the PEACE III Programme managed for the Special EU Programmes Body by Donegal County Council.
All are welcome.Donegal County Museum can be contacted on 074 9124613 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
