Aghadowey Presbyterian Church on Monday 28 July from 7:00 pm
A ‘Blue Plaque’ is to be unveiled celebrating the life of Rev. James McGregor, who in 1718 led hundreds of settlers from Aghadowey, Macosquin, Ringsend and other parts of the Bann Valley to the USA where they built the town of Londonderry, New Hampshire.
The plaque is to be unveiled by the US Consul General, following which local historians and US historian Rick Holmes will give illustrated talks.
Music and supper will be provided, and everyone is welcome to this unique historical celebration.
