12th 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.

We Count Too!

Roe Valley Ancestral Researchers produced a book highlighting the often-overlooked contribution of women during World War One by sharing the contribution of some local women. Their book We Count Too! also gives an insight into some of the key influencers of the development of nursing. The group were keen to be able to provide a toolkit to support their own members and other groups undertaking research into World War One nurses.

Hardcopies of the book are free and can be picked up at Rascahan House and Ballymoney Museum, or by contacting Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services through this website.

A digital copy of the book may be downloaded from RESOURCES.
