The occasion is the Sean MacDiarmada Summer School where the agenda is focussed on issues of local and regional importance.

Speakers today include Eamon O Cuiv, Mairead McGuinness and Caomhain O Caolain.

Kiltyclogher in the north of the county is the location of the homestead of Seán MacDiarmada, a leader in the 1916 rising, and a signatory of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. He was executed by the British for his part in the Rising at age 33.
