Join us for a short walk and talk along Ballyshannon’s Mall to the town centre with an update on the successful Historic Towns Initiative 2021 and a look forward to Phase 2 works in 2022. We will have stories and discussion about the buildings that will be subject to conservation works this year including Dorrian’s Pharmacy and Stephens Hardware, ending up in the Town Clock Building for a look at some very interesting documents recently uncovered in the former Belfast Bank building. It’s a wee insight into a thriving commercial town from around 120 years ago. The essential cup of tea will be included afterwards.
With the help of The Heritage Council, Donegal County Council, property owners and Ballyshannon Regeneration Group the ultimate goal is to conserve our architectural heritage, breathe new life and reuse some of our wonderful Ballyshannon buildings here in Ireland's Oldest Town.
