Dear Friend of Lismore

As part of the Homecoming Scotland year of celebrating emigrants, we are planning a “Homecoming Lismore” week, 8-15 August 2009.

The programme will include a formal reception for the descendants of emigrants, the launch of the island Genealogy Centre, publication of an Emigrants Register, an organised walk to the site of the first clearance at Achanard in the 1780s, tied together with drama and literature events featuring the young people of the island   The week will culminate with a ceilidh dance in the Lismore Hall, featuring traditional singers and players, and giving you the opportunity to dance.

On behalf of Comann Eachdraidh Lios Mòr, I am writing to invite you to take part with us in these celebrations.  If you are interested, it would be good to book accommodation early, as demand will be heavy.  Accommodation can be found on the this site there are more possibilities on the mainland ( ).

If you are in contact with any one else with Lismore connections, please show them this letter.

Looking forward to seeing you in 2009.
