Why Support Lough Gur?
Lough Gur Heritage Centre & the Honey Fitz Theatre, along with various attractions, events and educational outreach programmes, are are managed by local non profit community organisation “Lough Gur Development”.
Lough Gur Development was founded in 1969 and officially inaugurated in 1993 to promote, preserve and protect the history, archaeology, folklore and environment of the surrounding area.
The company structure includes a voluntary Chairperson and board members. They are supported by a manager and a team of staff along with local volunteers committed to our mission.
Leading into 2020 Lough Gur Development made significant investment into the Visitor Centre, Park and new playground to have a world class experience for our visitors. No one could have foreseen the devastating impact that covid-19 would have on our funding and income during the lockdown, coupled with the drop in visitor numbers for the remainder of the year.
