APPRECIATING ENNISKILLEN’S ECCLESIASTICAL HERITAGE
Wednesday 24 September 2014
The Ulster Historic Churches Trust which was founded in 1995 and exists to promote best practice in Church maintenance has run several seminars and conferences over many years. It also organised with UTV and the NIEA the very successful Church Maintenance award scheme of 2006. To date it has organised walking tours in Cookstown, Newtownards, Portadown and Derry/Londonderry. 2012 saw a major publication ‘New Life for Churches in Ireland-Good Practice in Conversion and Reuse’.
This latest event run in collaboration with Enniskillen Churches involves a tour of local churches, designed to appreciate the rich legacy of the town’s fine ecclesiastical heritage, followed by an informative talk aimed at how best to maintain these buildings for future generations.
We hope that Glebe Wardens, Vergers, Sextons and Property Stewards will find this particularly helpful.
You are warmly invited to join us for this event.
The walking tour includes the following churches: Darling St Methodist Church, St Michael’s Catholic Church, St Macartin’s Cathedral and Scots Presbyterian Church
