Skehana Heritage Week 2016
Skehana and District Heritage Group presented as their contribution for Heritage Week 2016 an Exhibition of the Houses of the Landed Estates at Skehana Sports Facility on August 21st & 22nd.
As part of its contribution to Heritage Week 2016 Skehana & District Heritage presented a photographic exhibition of over 300 houses of the landed estates in County Galway. This was first presented at the very successful and highly acclaimed Farming & Country Life 1916 event held in Mellows Campus Athenry in June of this year. It contained many images included in Patrick Melvin’s book Estates and Landed Society in Galway and has been since extended with images from other sources. The display itself, printed on waterproofed canvas, is 48 metres in length and almost 3 metres in height and was erected outdoors on the Skehana Community Sports Facility. Below are some of the images from the Saturday afternoon of the activity at the wonderful display of houses of Galway.
