This work and exhibition is part of the CINE project funded by the Northern and Arctic Periphery Programme (ERDF).
The work of this project is completed in collaboration between the Killybegs History & Heritage Society, Donegal County Museum and Ulster University’s Intelligent Systems Research Centre.
Special thanks to the Killybegs History & Heritage Society and the community of Killybegs for welcoming the project, providing a rich community heritage and for the numerous occasions they warmly hosted the project partners. We hope this work stands as an example of how a community can present their heritage goes someway towards thanking the community for participating in the process.
We would especially like to thank Derek Vial and Hugh Boyle for taking the time to present the site, the history and the heritage.
Connected Culture and Natural Heritage in a Northern Environment (CINE) is a collaborative digital heritage project between 9 partners and 10 associated partners from Norway, Iceland, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland.
CINE aims to transform people’s experiences of outdoor heritage sites through technology, building on the idea of “museums without walls”. New digital interfaces such as augmented reality, virtual world technology, and easy to use apps will bring the past alive, it will allow us to visualise the effects of the changing environment on heritage sites, and help us to imagine possible futures.
