  1. My name is Adrienne Czerwin-Abbott, I am researching our family history. My Grandmother was a refugee who came to Monaghan from Mechelen in Belgium during the 1st world war. She and her sisters started a Belgium embroidery factory called Belbroid in Monaghan. Obviously we would be thrilled if we could find a sample of the output of that factory. Can you assist with any information on this topic as Monaghan is planning a centenary celebration of the Belgium refugees coming to Monaghan and need relevant exhibits. Thanks Adrienne Czerwin Abbott (0863288707)

  2. I have inherited several yards of Maltese lace dated 1843 and Irish cream coloured and black lace of a similar date. I would like some advice about storing such lace. Jane C. Ryan

We flew our drone over Downpatrick town and captured a couple of aerial 360° photographs. Look out for the marker points in the aerial virtual tours, some of which will allow you to jump from the sky down into some of the various visitor attractions found in the town.
