Launch of the Heritage Map of Kinnitty

  • Exhibition

The launch of the heritage map of Kinnitty was the result of a development project involving the students of Kinnitty NS.

The students learned all about maps and mapping skills during this project. They discovered how to locate their homes before reviewing historical maps and comparing the current village to see the changes and developments in the village and the surrounding areas. Changes to the number of buildings and the use of the land were noted. 

The students created sections of an overall map of Kinnitty using the adoptive style of the ancient cartographers. 

The overall result is a beautiful heritage map of Kinnitty, which will be presented to the community in Kinnitty.
