Local people with interest in rivers invite all to meet at Grianan Who’s Who – Feb 22 ’17

Dear friends & family who are inspired by water,

I’m extending the invite to this “Who’s Who on Inishowen Rivers” event on Wednesday week at the Grianán Hotel’s round room. This is my call for artists, healers, parents, activists, nature lovers, crafts people, musicians, singers, swimmers, grandparents with fond memories of growing up by the rivers, children who like to paddle or play in the mud, spring well carers…. anyone who has cared about water over the years.
Central to my happiness here in Inishowen is the outdoor locations where gatherings of creativity take place.  So this is a cheer for the people who make connections with each other in the great outdoors through art projects, adventures by the sea and share quality time over tea made with spring water!  And here’s to sharing the inspiration!
Celebrate Water was the community group that initiated the discussions asking the community ‘what is possible?’.  A few years later the Bredagh River Walk offers a rich experience to walkers in Moville. Then, the next community project arose and has become the Inishowen Rivers Trust, who now host this event with a newly created post, Community Water Officer.  So,… it is poised for us all to come together for this Spring evening gathering at a fine location at the foot of the Grianán Hill.
If you have something to share which demonstrates your care for water then come along and be prepared to share your creations! It’s a whole evening event so there’s time to share and meet and move forward knowing more about who cares for our rivers, sea and lakes. (If you can’t be there and would like to display some art or flyer, get in touch with me – I can try to display your products (or photos of) there if you’d like)
Ar son na h-uisce!     For the water!   (and the craic!)
ps Many are expected to attend.  Book now for free here:

Posted by Inishowen Rivers Trust on Friday, February 3, 2017

Dear Members of our Inishowen community & interested groups,
The Inishowen Rivers Trust invites you or your group to a very special event in An Grianán Hotel, Burt on Feb 22nd 2017 at 6pm.
This event is entitled ‘Who’s Who on Inishowen Rivers’ and aims to connect people with an interest or role in protecting and monitoring our rivers.
We are inviting you to come along and MEET other communities and the agencies involved in monitoring our rivers, lakes and coastal areas. We invite you to SHARE your experiences, hopes and vision for the waters of Inishowen. And we encourage you to LEARN more about who can help you care for your local river and how you can get involved.
If you are involved with a water project in your area please bring along information about your work. We will have a stall for information about local community groups. There will be ample opportunity to share your thoughts and ask questions.
This event is FREE and open to all whether you are involved in a project, are part of an environmental group or tidy towns group, own land with a river or enjoy recreational fishing, walking, paddling or wildlife watching and any other activity that relates us to water. The event focuses on the Inishowen Municipal District but anyone from across Donegal or Derry is invited along to find out more.
Please register on Eventbrite so we know how much tea to make! (
The Inishowen Rivers Trust is co-ordinating this event with the support of the Waters & Communities Office (Donegal Office) and the Rivers Trust (Based in Cookstown).  The IRT was established in 2015 to support communities in caring for their local river through free training events, volunteer events, and advice. The work of the Trust covers the whole of the Inishowen Municipal District from Manorcunningham to Carrigans and right up to Malin Head.  Find out more on our FB page (
Hope to see you there!
