Lismore Heritage Centre celebrates 20 years

Lismore Heritage Centre invites you to celebrate its 20th birthday on Monday 14th May 2012. The Heritage Centre first opened its doors on St Carthage’s Day 1992. All are welcome to enjoy complimentary tea, coffee and homemade birthday cake.

Since 1992 Lismore Heritage Centre has welcomed upwards of 20,000 visitors each year and on Monday 14th one lucky person that walks through the centre doors will be chosen as its nominal 500.000th visitor. The individual selected to mark this milestone will be presented with a beautiful Iona Crystal clock. Iona Crystal is mouth blown, hand cut crystal produced in Co Waterford and for sale through the Heritage Centre’s Craft Shop.

To further mark the occasion on Monday 14th all items in The Craft Shop will be marked at 20% off for one day only.

Local primary school children will also join in the birthday celebrations; they have been invited to watch ‘The Lismore Experience’ the centre’s cinematic presentation of the rich history of Lismore. All visitors to the centre on Monday 14th May are welcome to watch ‘The Lismore Experience’ free of charge.

Mealla Fahey, Project Manager at Lismore Heritage Centre, says “We sincerely hope that people will find a moment to call into the centre on Monday 14th, to have a cup of tea, a piece of cake and to look back on what has been achieved in the past 20 years and more importantly what can be done in the next 20 to ensure the centre is still here welcoming visitors to Lismore and supporting the local community.”
