Lismore Faces and Associated Genealogy - Exhibition Opening
(Click on photos to enlarge)


Ionad Naomh Moluag, Lismore Gaelic Heritage Museum, opened their latest exhibition - Lismore Faces with some associated Genealogy – by inviting residents to a private viewing on Sunday 1 August.

The exhibition features the family trees of the  Stewart, McColl and Livingston(e) families along with an impressive display of archival photographs. Many of the photographs were part of the generous gift from Lily Stewart of Hawthorne Cottage which also included Gaelic and English books and family papers.

The Exhibition has been put together by volunteer archivist Margaret Black and genealogist Laura Gloag and, they told me, they have so much material that there will be many more displays featuring Lismore families. The opening was well supported and greatly enjoyed with the bonus of being able to see  St Moluag’s Pastoral staff at the Museum for the first time, thanks to Niall Livingstone who brought it along for the evening. The staff can normally be viewed by appointment at Bachuil as custody of it was entrusted to the Livingstone family who became almoners to Lismore Cathedral and Barons of Bachuil.

If you have Lismore roots and wish to know more about your family this is the exhibition for you and you can also email
leaving a message for the island's genealogist who will be happy to help.
The exhibition will run from Monday 2nd August 2010 daily from 11.00am to 4.00pm
