Wee Hannah The Workhouse Sheephaven History

Sheephaven Bay History

This exhibition was compiled and edited by local historian and author Cary Meehan.  It is the culmination of 4 years work with the Waves of Change project funded by the International Fund for Ireland and the Ann Brown Trust.

There are a number of story boards covering a range of topics such as Fishing in the area, the Congested Districts Board, the Largatrany Gold Hord found on Horn Head and Davey Hay.

Davey Hay was a local character with an interesting past which has been documented by Cary Meehan and the children from the Waves of Change project.  A book was produced detailing his life and recording one of his storys and a number of his poems, many of which are as relevant today as when they were written.

The book is on sale in the craft shop for €5.95.
