Production of a local history publication on the village of Dromara.


The promoter has established demand for a second book detailing the history of the Dromara area. 750 copies of an earlier publication in 2009 were distributed shortly after production was complete and the promoter continues to receive orders from local and overseas sources. The 2009 book “Dromara – In The Shadow Of Slieve Croob The Source Of The River Lagan” has also been particularly popular as a source of educational information and is used widely by local schools and libraries.


The promoter published 500 copies of a new book on the Dromara area containing all additional information which has been collated since the 2009 publication was printed.


The project has helped preserve the rural heritage of the Dromara area.
