A series of unique and insightful talks which will discuss and highlight the impact World War 1 had on Donegal, will be chronicled in a series of talks by Monreagh Heritage Centre which takes place all over Donegal during the next two weeks.
The talks will focus on the The First World War and its impact on Donegal, and it will be delivered by Steve Hunter from Monreagh Heritage Centre at venues across the county.
The talks are centred around the following theme – HANDS OF HISTORY – ONE DONEGAL – MANY PASTS – ONE FUTURE
