Cork Celebrates the Past – Exhibition. Oct. 3rd 2014 Cork City Hall

The Cork Celebrates the Past Exhibition, now in its sixth year, was very well attended and the Federation of Local History Societies Stand attracted many visitors during the day. It offered great exposure for the Federation and allowed us to meet and engage with people interested in the history of their area and their community. It was also a chance to meet many other historical, archaeological and heritage groups who had stands at the exhibition. As a result of our presence four new societies have joined the Federation and these are listed in our new members section. We also had an opportunity to put on show our recently acquired set of Hidden Gems & Forgotten People display panels to good effect. There was a lot of interest in the Hidden Gems & Forgotten people project and we encourage societies who have not already made any submissions to come on board.
