New - A Guide to Blue Plaques in Ulster

On Wednesday next the Circle will launch its first printed guide to it's Blue Plaques. The event will be held, as part of the Belfast Book Festival, on Wednesday 15 June starting at 6.00pm  - see, page 43. Light refreshments will be available.  There will be another launch in the Verbal Arts Centre, in Derry City, on the following Wednesday, starting at 12 noon.

The Guide is free of charge and, as well as being available to those at the launches, will be in local libraries, museums and Tourist Centres.

The Guide is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Guest Speaker, in Belfast, will be Rita Harkin for the Fund.

The Guide has details of the 115 plaques unveiled by the Circle in the three decades to 2009, since it was founded in the early 1980s, and commemorates lives over the last 700 years.
