The museum held it's annual dinner at Crew's restaurant on Friday February 4. There was a very good attendance and the night was enjoyed by all. A special surprise was arranged to mark the birthday of our President Nioclás Ó Griofáin. Museum curator Willie Fraher gave a brief but fascinating account of a 19th century diary written by John Russell of Ballysallagh, Kinsalbeg, which is in the museum collection. We would like to thank the management and staff of Crew's for the lovely meal. To view more pictures from the night visit us on facebook
