Skehana & District Heritage Group is delighted to introduce you to our new postcard depicting some of the important built heritage of our area. It has been designed and produced by Marian Hardiman in conjunction with Lorna Elms, Project Development Officer at the Irish Community Archive Network & National Museum of Ireland. We congratulate Marian on her efforts and thank Lorna for her continuous support to us on this and so many other initiatives.
Four complimentary postcards will be delivered to each house in the area over the coming days and it is hoped that these will be sent to relatives and friends at home and away. All of the photographs were taken by Marian and she wishes to express her sincere gratitude to the guardians of these sites for their support. The poem extract on the reverse side was taken from the publication Light and Shade by James Arthur Henry Jameson at Windfield House in 1890. This particular poem describes the landscape of Windfield and makes a particular reference to The Curraghaun. We are fortunate to have been presented with the only known copy of the publication which was printed by Browne & Nolan, Dublin in the early 1900s.
If you live away from the Skehana area and would like a few copies of the postcards please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on this page and we will endeavour to get them to you.
