These records are a unique combination of official government files and privately deposited collections from local business, organisations, families and individuals.

Truagh Development Association CLG is a voluntary community organisation, which has worked to develop the community of the wider Truagh, Blackwater Valley and Sliabh Beagh areas for over 40 years. It is the umbrella for various groups and organisations within this large, dispersed rural border area. Its primary objective is to implement activities, which benefit all. Among its aims are: to realise local community initiatives; to identify opportunities for future community development and enterprise; to rebuild relationships with our neighbours in Aughnacloy and border corridor; and to rebuild the community and business relations that existed before border marginalisation.
Cycling Ireland is the National Governing body for cycling across the island of Ireland and their vision is to develop an island enriched by cycling.
