Covenant trip to Donegal
A TRIP to the Ulster Covenant ‘Walking the Colours’ exhibition in Letterkenny and a performance of Jonathan Burgess’ ‘The Home Place’ in St Johnston Orange Hall has been organised by Derry City Council for this Friday.
Ulster Day will be celebrated on September 29, commemorating the Ulster Solemn League and Covenant and Women’s Declaration which was signed in 1912 by 400,000 people in a vast demonstration of public opening.
But what do we really know about it?
As part of their Good Relations strategy, Derry City Council’s Community Relations section are running a 1 day information event on Friday, September 28, which will incorporate a visit to the Donegal County Museum in Letterkenny to visit the Ulster Covenant Exhibition and ‘Walking the Colours’ exhibition.
Council’s Community Relations Officer Julia Kee said: “This event has been organised to support initiatives which respond to the legacy of the past in ways which assist today’s society to remember, commemorate, reflect and move forward into a shared society.
“The daylong event will also incorporate a visit to the St Johnston Orange Hall which will host ‘The Home Place’, a play by celebrated local playwright Jonathon Burgess. This will be followed by a facilitated workshop and discussion.”
Participants will be collected at Lisnagelvin Leisure Centre at 9.30am on Friday, September 28 and taken by coach to the event, returning to the Centre again by 4.15pm.
