The Irish Workhouse Centre
As part of their National Heritage Week programme this year, the Irish Workhouse Centre will be focusing on the many forgotten stories surrounding the history of the workhouse. Through the use of short films the centre will tell the stories of the people, the building and the surrounding area. These films are designed to share the history the Irish Workhouse Centre holds and hopefully attract more people to come forward and engage with their ongoing research into the past of Portumna Poor Law Union. There will be five films throughout National Heritage Week that will be available on various social media platforms.
