Glencolmcille Folk Village
Glencolmcille, County Donegal
A folk village museum located near Glencolmcille, County Donegal
Fr James McDyer moved to Glencolmcille in 1951. On his arrival Fr McDyer recognised the lack of proper services in the area and set about promoting industry and providing better facilities in the Parish. The Folk Village Museum was built in three months. At the opening of the Folk Village, it consisted of four houses representing the cottage types of the area during the previous three hundred years complete with furnishings and artifacts donated by the local community. These artifacts would have been in common use by the people of Glencolmcille even to that time. Since that initial opening, a school, shebeen, craft shop and other items have been added. The Folk Village has thrived and grown over the years.
