A new exhibition ‘Ulster Covenant 1912 County Donegal’ will be officially opened at 6pm on Saturday 15 September in the Donegal County Museum in Letterkenny.
The story of 1912 and the Ulster Covenant is part of a narrative that encompasses communities across Donegal and the island of Ireland.

This included 17,985 people at 51 venues throughout Donegal.
Admission is free and the exhibition runs until the end of 2012.
