In connection with the celebration of the Columba 1500, the Donegal County Museum will take visitors on a journey of discovery through the life of Columba in Donegal and Delhi on Friday, September 17, the main exhibition “Columba-People and Myths”. Open.

St. Cornsil is one of the most important figures in early Christianity. He is one of three Irish patron saints and his life is the subject of folklore and legend. Cornsil spread Christianity not only to Ireland, but also to Scotland, Great Britain, and parts of Europe.

Curator Judith McCarthy said: “Kornsil is an important person with a great cultural, historical and religious heritage, and it is important to be commemorated in the county where he was born.”

The exhibition, which will be open to the public at the County Museum at 1:00 on Saturday, September 18, seeks to separate the man from mythology. It has several family-friendly elements to guide visitors through the life of Corumba and to explore stories related to Corumba, young and old.

The exhibition is a joint project of the County Donegal County Council and the City & Strabane District Council, supported by the Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gertahat, Sports and Media sectors. The exhibition will be held until early 2022.

Admission is free, but groups must be booked.
