History, Heritage and Society of the Loughshore
Lough Neagh Connections Symposium: Lough Neagh has been a huge dominating influence on many lives and is different in many ways from other landscapes, from its sheer size and vastness and its genuine natural and cultural uniqueness, to its importance in the history of Ireland and the United Kingdom.
The immensity of this body of water can make its seem like a massive natural barrier but it can also be a great connector. Lough Neagh Partnership Ltd has recently secured funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver the Lough Neagh Landscape Partnership Programme which aims to address the heritage needs of the lough and its shoreline on holistic landscape basis.
The Programme will deliver 27 projects that relate directly to the conservation and promotion of the Lough’s cultural, built and natural heritage. As part of this programme, the focus of this symposium is to look at past loughshore connections, rekindle old relationships and build new ones on the rich heritage of this place that is Lough Neagh.
