This week, Fairmont will be recognizing part of its Appalachian heritage through presentations from visitors from Northern Ireland.
Throughout the week, which is to be proclaimed as Northern Ireland Week by the City of Fairmont on Monday, events will be held on the campus of Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College for students and community members to learn about the conflict between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
The events are made possible by FSU President Maria Rose, the FSU College of Liberal Arts and the Frank and Jane Gabor West Virginia Folklife Center.
