Last Wednesday night saw the start of the community consultation for the Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership.

The Landscape Partnerships programme is for schemes led by partnerships of local, regional and national interests which aim to conserve areas of distinctive landscape character throughout the UK. Partnerships can apply for a grant from £100,000 to £3million. www.hlf.org.uk

The music from the Ring of Gullion Comhaltas, and dancing from students of Debby Maguire’s School of Dancing left the audience in no doubt that the talent in South Armagh is second to none.

Darren Rice, Ring of Gullion Officer said, “People had a chance to have their say about the projects and there was also some fantastic ideas for their own heritage projects that the board will assess, and I have no doubt we will run with them.”

If you missed the consultation in Mullaghbane there will be a chance for you to have your say in Forkhill on 3rd July, Jonesborough on 17th July and Camlough and Bessbrook on 24th July. There will be storytelling and refreshments on the night in Forkhill and a chance to have your say.

There will be an opportunity on the 28th of August for everyone to see the final list of proposed projects and have their say on them.

To keep up to date with this project and other projects in the Ring of Gullion visit www.ringofgullion.org and follow on Facebook and Twitter. Darren can be contacted on 02830868900 or info@ringofgullion.org .
