‘Echoes of the Causeway’ – Murrough and the Paiste28th May 2020
Dear Diary…week ending 3rd July6th July 2020
A new exhibit for Ballycastle Museum was to be opened in April 2020 – The Devils of Ballycastle – part of the King of Ballycastle project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The social distancing restrictions in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic meant that the opening of the exhibit was delayed, as was the community event we were planning which was to coincide with the opening.
However, while everything else is on hold, the exhibition working group from the Friends of Ballycastle Museum met up with Nic Wright from Museum Services for a virtual catch-up to discuss the project and what it has been like working on the exhibition.
