Fahan Heritage Group are launching their new website which includes a virtual tour of Saint Mura’s Graveyard as it is today and how it would have looked when the ancient monastery stood there.
The launch takes place in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel in Buncrana on Friday, March 31 at 2.30 pm.
This new website will be an important addition to Heritage Tourism in Inishowen. It can be accessed on your smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.
It contains a wealth of information, archaeology and history of the Fahan area. It has contributions from the Discovery Project, Professor Neal Cooke, Ulster University, Dr Gabriel Scally as well as many local historians.
The virtual tour also includes a reconstruction of the ancient monastery which once stood on this site. This is the work of Colm Fahy and gives us an impression of what monastic life was like in medieval Ireland.
Saint Mura’s Cross is one of the oldest early Christian monuments in Ireland. It is also the only ancient monument in the country which contains a Greek inscription.
If interested in attending the launch please register your interest by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org as numbers are limited.
