Welcome to our first edition of The Creeslough View, which you will find is filled with memorabilia, nostalgia, heritage and local history, – the story of life presented by members of our community.
The purpose of the Creeslough View is to give the locals an opportunity to document stories, poems, and old photographs to remind us now and again of our past on which we build our future. Because so much happens throughout the year in Creeslough it was felt it would be a shame not to document it. It is hoped the Creeslough View will enable smaller clubs and voluntary organisations to show off their achievements throughout the year.
The social history of this locality has changed dramatically, but all the more is the need to record and acknowledge for tomorrow’s world, the spirit and common good, the close knit and dependence on others as a community, and the many characters who sustained it during the difficult times.
We would like to thank each and every one of you that contributed to the Creeslough View. For the photographs and the stories, and a special thank you to the sponsors for their generous support. I must also thank John Doak for all his work in preparing the material for printing. Because we received so much material for this edition, it was impossible to include it all. But rest assured it will be printed in the next edition next year.
Again happy Christmas and thank you for purchasing the Creeslough View
