ABOUT THE BALLYBOFEY BIG BIRTHDAY BASH
Did you know that the town of Ballybofey was ‘established’ exactly 400 years ago? In 1619 a charter was granted for a market to be established on the banks of the River Finn. While there certainly were people already living along the River’s banks, this is the first record of a formal gathering here.
In celebration of this event BASICC has partnered with the Ballybofey, Stranorlar & District Historical Society to plan for a community event to mark the occasion from 27 to 29 September.
We will celebrate with a weekend full of independent events run by groups around the towns. Keep an eye on the BASICC Community News Facebook page for more details, or contact Leah on 074 91 90909.
