⭐️New Book Released ⭐️
Annals of Drumhome is a new local history publication researched and compiled by Drumhome Heritage Society. The book follows a chronological path, beginning away back in ancient times when records first were made in the 4th century and continue right up to the 21st century. Annals of Drumhome is a written record capturing important dates, events and stories which happened in, or had a consequence in, the Drumhome area.
This Annals begins in the late 4th century. At that time Drumhome was a very important natural ancient border, where chieftains and High Kings fought to gain control. It was a place of great significance in the spread of Christianity due to the presence of a seat of learning, a monastery said to be established by St. Colmcille himself, here in the heart of Drumhome. Saint Ernan as first Abbot of Drumhome is buried there with fellow monks. Saint Eunan followed in the steps of ColmCille and travelled to Iona becoming 9th Abbot.
Ireland's oldest illuminated manuscript, The Cathach, was held in the custody of the Mac Robhartaigh family, in a monastery in Ballymagroarty, Ballintra.
Annals of Drumhome brings us on a journey through the years and through the centuries, also documenting the O’Donnell clan in the region. The division of lands, the rise of English Ascendancy, and the development of towns and villages are also recorded. The Annals documents how the area was affected by The Great Famine, Disease, Immigration, The Flax Industry, Great Storms, Tragedies, the arrival and eventual demise of the Railway in the area, The War of Independence, The First World War, Local Industry, the formation of the Border, the social history of our local schools and Churches and much more.
The Annals travels on through the years, recording important events, memorable moments, tragedies, news items and long forgotten happenings from the past, right up to the turn of the Millennium.
Annals of Drumhome also include some wonderful local poems and songs which were inspired by an important event or tragedy of the time. Articles contributed by Trevor Johnston, Brian Curristan and Josephine Griffith Quinn recall fond memories of village life and school days. These memoirs are sure to jog some precious memories of this special area.
In addition, Annals of Drumhome is packed full of new and old photographs, original new drawings, historic sketches, and diagrams, to enhance the articles and stories contained.
The Drumhome Heritage Society research and editorial team bring the reader a well-constructed, yet easily assessable publication which will warrant a place in your homes and hearts for many years to come.
This is a book which can be flicked trough at anytime to find that little nugget of information you never knew before, about the place we call home – where we belong - Drumhome.
