Patricia Stratford speaking at Buncrana Library

A good number turned up on a wet Saturday morning last at Buncrana Library to hear a talk by Patricia Stratford from the Carrickabraghy Restoration Society. Patricia’s talk was on the history of the O’ Doherty's and the Keep in Buncrana and its connection with Carrickabraghy Castle near Ballyliffin.

Patricia Stratford was part of a voluntary group that successfully conserved Carrickabraghy Castle in 2014 on the Isle of Doagh near Ballyliffin. Following her talk we strolled to the Keep where our Ronan O’ Doherty gave further information to the gathering about the ongoing restoration work underway at the Keep and the plans that are in the pipeline.

We wish to say a very big “Thank You” to Patricia for her very informative talk and a special note of thanks to all of you who attended. We also wish to thank the staff at Inish Media and Buncrana Library for all their assistance in making this event a real success.
