The event is free of charge and all are welcome to attend.

The presentation will feature a slideshow of archive photos showing the Model Village from its inception to the present day. Highlighting the planning and expertise involved in creating Ireland’s only Model Village and the many loyal people who participated in the project by providing funding and leadership, also the loyal staff who made it possible. 


The evening should be of great interest to locals, business people, those involved in the tourism and hospitality sector and in particular the many people who worked in the village over the last 25 years including those who were young students during their summer holidays. The evening will be a tribute to the many loyal people who supported the project by providing sponsorship, donating artefacts and leadership and also the loyal staff who made it all possible.
