Letterkenny 400 event launched

The Letterkenny 400 event has been officially launched, with a series of events to commemorate the history and development of the town since it's emergence during the plantation

The genesis of the commemoration came last year, and Mayor Cllr Tadhg Culbert made it a priority of his term to have 1611 recognised as the year Letterkenny came into being.

Cllr Culbert says the dedication of a large number of people means they have been able to put together a very good series of events for relatively little money..............
