Focus on Ulster migration to North America at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre

Migration exhibition SM Farm

A new exhibition which explores the first organised migration from Ulster to North America has opened at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre in Limavady.

Staff from Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Museums Service were joined at the opening of ‘Causeway 1718: Society in Transition’ by Councillor Richard Holmes and Mrs Katherine Barr, daughter of the late local historian the Rev T H Mullin.

The fascinating display explores the 1718 Bann Valley Migration and also features the people and places of the Causeway area in the 18th century, connecting local people and places with important developments happening on both sides of the Atlantic. Discover what was happening, why it happened, and what the 1718 Bann Valley Migration was all about.

Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Museums Service would like to thank Wilbert Patterson for generously loaning so many wonderful artefacts to the exhibition.

The Causeway 1718: Society in Transition exhibition continues until August 25 and is open every Monday to Saturday 9.30am-5pm. Admission is free.
