Bunclody
Bunclody Town has a rich heritage and it was felt that this could be further promoted. It was also recognised that there is a need to provide in-door facilities so that visitors have things to do when the weather is inclement. Some suggestions included a historical Museum. This could possibly be located in one of the vacant buildings in the Town. This could include a photographic exhibition and artefacts representing Bunclody’s history. Reference was made to ‘Enniscorthy Castle’ and how successfully this has promoted Enniscorthy’s heritage. Another excellent example is the ‘St Conall’s Museum and Heritage Centre’ in a small village called Glenties, County Donegal. According to the Rough Guide of Ireland it is one of the best small-Town museums in the country and displays much material of local interest, focusing on wildlife, Donegal’s railways, antiquities, and the effects of the Great Famine. It also holds a Summer School in late July, attracting hundreds of people to its exhibitions, seminars and literary debates.
