News from the Past – A World War 1 Centenary Event in Sligo

NFTP - image 1 - LRSligo County Council and the Sligo Peace & Reconciliation Partnership Committee are rolling out a peace themed project to commemorate World War 1 with a Sligo connection.

This project has been funded by the PEACE III Programme through the European Union’s European Regional Development Fund managed for the Special EU Programmes Body by Sligo County Council on behalf of Sligo Peace & Reconciliation Partnership Committee.

This project is all about the men and women from Sligo who were caught up in the conflict of World War 1 and their families.  The aim of the project is to encourage people from all over the County to come forward with their stories, postcards, letters, photographs and other memorabilia.   For the first time people will be openly encouraged to talk about their families involvement in the war.
