Our winter opening times are: History House is open Thurs to Sun but will be closed Sundays through Jan & Feb. The Fishermen’s Museum will be open 11-4pm up to end of March
We had the very great pleasure of speaking to Marie Gillooly of the Roscommon Solstice Choir, some time ago. She wanted to use Toilers of the Deep by Eliza Veness in a memorial service. (Please click this Link to their Facebook page for the full story.) Fergus Sweeney very kindly sent us this link to the video Toilers of the Deep Video We feel this poem reaches across time and place and is as relevant now as it was 100 years ago when Eliza originally wrote it.
