Fenagh Down Through the Years

We are looking for any old photos/documents/items depicting life in and around Fenagh down through the years. If you or a relative/neighbour/friend have any of these items you would like to donate, we would love to display them here in the Centre or take a copy of your photo, so have a good rummage and see what you might find in the bottom of a long forgotten drawer or cupboard!
