Marvellous Model Memories

Posted on: 20th June 2017

Memories were kindled and now burn bright within Bessbrook Community following the launch of the Bessbrook Model village project in Bessbrook Townhall. This Heritage Lottery funded project, which is managed by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council aims to engage with the local community to better interpret Bessbrook’s heritage and build a picture of the village that will cross generations. Guests were treated to colourful stories from speakers Alf McCreary and Graham McAleer. Both men grew up in Bessbrook and worked in the mill and shared vivid memories of the village that shaped their lives.
