Virtually 1916 – Schools’ Competitions

The County Donegal Historical Society is running a number of competitions for schools related to 1916. For more information, and to download an application form, follow this link: www.donegalhistory.com/school.html

If anyone would like to contact me for advice, I’d be happy to help out. For starters, have a look at the Donegal County Council education pack on 1916, available free from any County Donegal library (more info here: http://www.donegalcoco.ie/culture/heritage/heritagenews/countydonegalin1916educationpack/). There is also some very helpful information in the ‘Donegal Annual 1966’ which is available in Letterkenny library and contains articles which were written by participants in the Rising.
