DUNGIVEN'S Glenshane Community Development Limited recently hosted a community engagement project in Glenshane House which explored the impact the famine had on our local area and how this affected the community.
The project also looked at the impact of the Anglo Irish Treaty and the creation of the Irish Free State in 1921 as these events affected both of our communities. This project was funded by a Causeway Coast and Glens Community Development Support Grant 2017-2018 and included a study trip to Fort Dunree and the Famine Village on the Inishowen Peninsula.
