New book captures folklore and stories of the supernatural from across the Causeway Coast and Glens

1 Mins read

Folklore and stories of the supernatural from across the Causeway Coast and Glens have been captured in a new book.

The initiative is part of Council’s PEACE IV Local Area Action Plan, funded by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB), which is providing £3.8 million for community projects across the borough.

The free publication entitled ‘Lore of the Land’ is the result of a partnership between Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Museum Services and Clanmil Housing Association. Through a programme of reminiscence sessions, art workshops and historical site tours, the initiative focused on the Borough’s folklore as a way of better understanding our area.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Sean Bateson said: “The project encouraged participants to share stories that have been passed down from generation to generation, as well as their own personal experiences. From Binevenagh to the Bann Valley, and from Dungiven to Cushendall, ‘Lore of the Land’ captures the folklore, supernatural, and stories of the unexplained from the Causeway area in the 20th and 21st century.”

The Lore of the Land project was part of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s PEACE IV Understanding Our Area programme, which has been delivered by Museum Services with a wide range of community partners across the borough.

The book is available for free and can be picked up at Visitor Information Centres across the area, or by contacting Museum Services at [email protected]
