The Story of 171812th March 2019
Understanding Our Area – People and Places was a cross-community project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme. It set out to increase the understanding and expression of our culture and history, our people and places, through museum collections, historic sites and cultural heritage using interpretation, arts and multimedia to create a peace building legacy. The initiative is part of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s PEACE IV Local Area Action Plan, funded by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, which is providing £3.8 million for community projects across the borough.
Between 2017 and 2020, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services supported a range of community-led projects, along with a range of events, showcases and resources exploring the history of the Causeway area.
Place Names and Field Names of Culfeightrin
Carey Historical Society developed a fieldnames project for the parish of Culfeightrin, near Ballycastle. The project was developed to build on earlier work under the Heart of the Glens Partnership Scheme, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and managed by Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust. By holding a series of mapping days and interviewing local people, along with extensive archival research, they produced a detailed volume recording and publishing the historic names of the area and their backgrounds. They also mapped the families who lived in the parish over the years.
Hardcopies of the Place Names and Field Names of Culfeightrin are free and can be picked up from Ballycastle Museum, Ballymoney Museum, or by contacting Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services through this website.
