Daingean Heritage Fair
Dress Code 1950''s Era
29th June 2014 at 12:00 pm
From the formation of the Turf Development Board in 1934 to the formation of Bord na Mona in 1946, the influence of the bogs that surround Daingean and their industrialisation has impacted on every family in the area.
It is intended that the Canal Store will host photos, videos and lectures of an era of the 50's. Stories of briquettes and brickeens, baggers and millers will be relived and intertwined as the working lives of the vast majority of our community are revisited.
The dress code will be dungarees, transport by bicycle, lunch boxes are biscuit tins on the carriers of the bikes.
In addition the normal Heritage Fair stalls will provide entertainment, craft exhibits and food services to the gathered community.
