Heritage Week 2023: Lissadell Church and the Gore Booth Family History

A talk on “Lissadell and the Gore Booth Family History” will be given by Lady Stella Durand on Saturday 12th August at 7pm in Lissadell Centre (note the change of venue). Stella is a retired clergywoman living in Sligo, and is a volunteer tourist chaplain at Drumcliffe Church. She has a close family connection to the Gore Booths and will share some stories about times gone by. 
Sally Siggins, member of the Select Vestry will also outline current conservation works happening to the church, including the restoration of the east windows. The windows are in Dublin undergoing conservation and are hoped to be reinstalled in October. This has been possible due to a generous grant from The Heritage Council and Sligo County Council. Further funds are required to complete this work and other necessary repairs to the church. A GoFundMe has been set up to aid efforts and all donations are greatly appreciated: https://www.gofundme.com/f/k3k8u-lissadell-church-restoration-fund
