Event description

Description

Part of National Heritage Week, 2019

Board the Tardis and travel back in time with Donegal's 'Dr Who' Seoirse Ó Dochartaigh. Find out more about Letterkenny’s hidden history. Have fun and learn all about the origins of your town.

The cat who accidently set fire to Letterkenny’s oldest village. Why “Old Town” cannot possibly be its original name? Did you know there is a district to the west of Letterkenny called “Sallaghagrane”? Its original Irish words are hidden in this funny spelling. Do you think it means Sally Trees Against the Sun or The Unsightly Swampy Ground? We value your opinion. But do you know where “Milk Isle” is? Clue: it’s near the Dry Arch roundabout. Maps, pencils and handouts provided.
