We will have a townlands workshop on Wednesday 19 February at 8pm in the Heritage Room, Old Girls’ School, Corrandulla, aimed at furthering our project on researching townlands in the parish. Pages have been drafted for several townlands – see http://annaghdownheritage.ie/townlands/.

All are welcome to attend – attendees are asked to bring along a laptop if possible.
