Community Network’s “Cross Community Engagement Project”

A project supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).

County Monaghan Community Network is tasked to deliver two projects as Partner Delivery Agents with Monaghan County Council. The funding is awarded under Priority 1: Promoting Peace and Reconciliation; the promotion of positive relations characterised by respect, where cultural diversity is celebrated and people can live, learn and socialise together, free from prejudice, hate and intolerance. The Cultural Awareness Programme aims to celebrate multiculturalism and diversity, to value the skills and cultures of all communities, indigenous and new, and ensure they are allowed to achieve their full potential, have the same opportunities as their Irish peers, and to participate fully in the economic, social, political and cultural life of their communities.

A residential cross border/cross community study visit took place to the site of the Battle of the Boyne at Oldbridge, Co Meath, followed by a residential visit to An Grianán centre for lifelong learning, Termonfeckin, Co Louth from 3rd to 5th November 2017. This tour provided a shared learning experience for all participants, who all learned something more about each other’s historical and cultural background. It also provided a chance to explore an area of history where they may not have traditionally been comfortable visiting. The weekend provided an increased awareness and respect for diversity and different cultures.

Chef Len’s cookery demonstration

Off to view the “Irish Trader” surrounded by the Irish Sea. The ship was run aground in 1974 during storms in the Irish Sea and it has remained on the flat sandy beach ever since.
It has lost a lot of its form and now lacks the qualities that once made this a great Irish landscape photography destination.

The Battle of the Boyne 1690 was a sectarian and ethnic conflict, in many ways a re-run of the Irish Confederate Wars of 50 years earlier.

Selection of crafts from the Bag making sewing class.

Human Bingo provided great networking and English language opportunities and fun!

Restored Octagonal Walled Garden at the Battle of the Boyne site. The Coddington family, who established this estate in 1724 had a great interest in formal landscape design. The gardens include Peach House, Dog Kennels, Gardeners’ Bothy, and the traditional Orchard re-planted with native Irish apple-tree varieties.
