Field Day : Ballindrait 3rd September

We are meeting for our next Field Day in the car park of Ballindrait Presbyterian Church on Sunday next at 2.30 p.m.

From here we will have a walking tour of Ballindrait Village, guided by local historian Belinda Mahaffy.

Ballindrait village is located where the main road from Raphoe to Lifford crosses the Burn Dale.

At approximately 3.30 p.m. we will proceed up the Raphoe Road and first left to Guystown House (with railings at entrance) where Vincent Gallagher will tell us about its associations with members of Rev James Porter’s family.

At approx 4.30 pm, we will proceed to the Diamond area in Raphoe where Belinda Mahaffy shall give a short talk on the history of Raphoe.

The long term weather forecast is good so hopefully we will have an interesting afternoon.

Non-members are welcome to join us and the event is free of charge.
