An Tobar CIC Wins National Lottery Good Causes Project Of The Year NI!

After many weeks of public voting and support, we are delighted to announce that An Tobar CIC has won the National Lottery Good Causes Project of the Year NI Award for our Heritage Project in Brian's Wood!

"The wellness centre and social farm in Silverbridge, south Armagh has won a National Lottery award for helping young people explore the natural and cultural heritage of Brian’s Wood.

Sisters Margaret Finnegan and Kathleen Finnegan-Agnew have welcomed over 450 local primary school children to the native woodland located on their 40-acre ancestral farm. The wood is dedicated to the memory of their uncle.

A group of young adults with disabilities undertook the John Muir Environmental award as part of the project. They installed trail signage and fencing to help visitors explore the wood and continue to manage the trail’s maintenance."
