At the recent meeting Taughboyne History new members Eimer and Stephen were welcomed to the group. Jim had photos of the hollow stones from his home farm. Some members went to the Remembering World War 1 Exhibition in the County Museum, Letterkenny. Colm gave an account of the occasion. Our members who attended were agreed that the occasion was well worthwhile and Hilary was impressed with the way her family’s artifacts were displayed. Several extracts were read from various schools within our project area. Many of the stories gave an interesting insight to the way of life and customs of times past. It was agreed that we should consider selecting two or three stories from each school. For our next meeting it was agreed that members would have read all of their School’s material and select the ones thought most worthy of further consideration. At our next meeting, Wednesday 22 October, a structure will be put in place for the research of our local townlands and placenames.
