On Friday April 24th we met with Siobhan Ryan, Sligo County Council Heritage Officer to introduce our project and present this website as our main means of facilitating the project’s development and public participation therein.
From that meeting the following emerged:
- the Council would be supportive of such a project – especially as it could dovetail with other initatives such as the Wild Atlantic Way, Slí na Sláinte and other local walks and public heritage and/or health initiatives. Other bodies and individuals we should approach were suggested.
- various costs and funding sources were explored and discussed
- ideas for panel design, materials to use (or avoid) and sources of advice on the same were discussed
- potential pitfalls were also talked through.
Our next step now is to move toward a public launch meeting in the immediate future.
