Bellaghy Historical Society – May 2002

The final meeting of the season of the Bellaghy Historical Society was the A.G.M. and attracted the usual good attendance.

Office Bearers elected for the following year were Chairperson Mrs Mary Breslin, Hon Sec. Mrs Patricia Lowry, Hon Treas. Mrs Pat Henry, Committee members Mr.Colm Scullion, Mr Dermot Keenan, Mrs Margaret Evans, Mrs Ena Hammond and Mr Sam Overend.

The Speaker for the evening was Mr. Sean Toner who gave a very interesting and amusing talk on the origins of many of our local sayings, tracing their roots back many centuries. A lot of research and time had gone into preparing his lecture which was very well received by his audience.

Thanking him, the Chairperson, Mrs Mary Breslin also invited members to return again in the Autumn for the first meeting in October. Plans were also drawn up for the outing to Omagh Folk Park to take place in June.
