A notice regarding the issuing of mining prospecting licences around the Donegal Town area, was posted in a local paper in June. There have been other licences granted in Donegal in Inishowen and a notice also around Churchill. It is difficult to get information or maps because the notice only appears for a short lengh of time. We saw this notice and thought we would go to Donegal Town and engage people about these places in the main public area in the town..’the diamond’
We had lots of interest and local people came and chatted to us about these places and how they had not heard about the notice. One man told me he thought it was beautiful just to see his townland’s name written in a public space! These places are about people- they are not just names.
