Saturday 14th September - history comes to life at Nendrum. Join us for this fun and educational Living History event suitable for all the family.

The early Celtic Christian church established here 1,500 years ago was as much about new technology as it was about a new faith. Harnessing the energy of the sea to grind their daily bread, these early monks were at the cutting edge. 12:00 – 16:00. Free admission.

This is a Love Heritage NI event organised by Historic Environment Division, Department for Communities.
