Kilmovee Heritage & Tourism were delighted to be able to host two events for local schoolchildren funded by Creative Ireland in the last few weeks. The funding was to encourage groups to take part in heritage and cultural activities in the community.
Pupils from Tavrane and Kilmovee NS took part in a drumming workshop in the Thatch Cottage with Barra O Flanniagh from Slí na Croí Drumming. Also to celebrate Cruinniú na nÓg, we facilitated a biodiversity workshop for Kilmovee NS in our new community polytunnel. The polytunnel is a recent addition to the amenities in Kilmovee, with funding from RTE does Comic Relief. The children were presented with upcycled gardening aprons made by Roscommon Women’s Network CycleUp environmental group.
It was great to be able to have small groups back again in the Community Centre and to organise events in line with the current restrictions. We plan to hold more events in the coming months, including our third Dry Stone Wall course with Kilmovee’s native stonemason Dominic Keogh on September 4th & 5th.
