County Monaghan Heritage Forum – Corduff Raferagh Community Centre and Corduff Raferagh Heritage Group were delighted to host the County Monaghan Heritage Forums meeting on Monday afternoon in the Centre.  The meeting facilitated by Mary Kerley, a member of the Heritage Forum was a first for our Centre and hopefully an opportunity for further Forum gatherings.  The Heritage Forum comprises of approx. 15 members, all with invested interests in all aspects of our counties heritage such as built, natural and intangible heritage.  The Forums members represent various public bodies and historical and heritage groups.  The group meets 3 or 4 times a year to discuss pressing heritage related issues in the county, feeding their concerns, aspirations and suggestions into Monaghan County Council.
