Bundoran’s Magh Ene Historical Society are looking for your help to find information relating to a Bundoran badge that was recently sent to them.
The badge was found in Selby, Yorkshire by a gentleman with a metal detector a few months back. He then got in touch with Discover Bundoran via Facebook to see if anyone had any information about it. After a few appeals, no information was forthcoming so the Historical Society are now hoping that the wider public can help shed some light on its origin.
The metal badge measures less than 2cm by 2cm and depicts the a sailing boat and the word Bundoran.
Valentine O’Kelly, Chair of Magh Ene Historical Society is appealing for anyone that can provide information on the badge to get in touch ‘we are extremely grateful to the gentleman for making contact with us and for his generous donation to the Bundoran museum which is located at Bundoran Community Centre. It’s an unusual item and we are keen to find out more about it, what it was used for and indeed what era it might be from. If anyone can provide any details on it they can get in touch with us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by popping into the Community Centre.’
The badge will be on display in Bundoran Museum and any information received as to its origin will be posted next to it.
