Bartle and Déirdre were out visiting Sean Mac Eoin at the Forge in Ballinalee yesterday and are working with Harp Media on a Film Project.

Knights and Conquests Heritage Centre in Granard has been confirmed as the Top Museum in Ireland from the Republic of Ireland Prestige Awards.


General Manager Bartle D'Arcy said the honour was testimony to the continued efforts of a small band of individuals who have helped make the centre one of the midlands' key tourism attractions.

"This is a Fantastic Recognition of the work that Déirdre Orme Our Education Officer and I do here as a Community led Tourism project. With the valued support of our Granard Motte Committee and the local Community these things are possible and we have big plans coming up, " he said.
