Ireland's beautiful Lough Swilly was the setting for a dramatic story which changed the life of a foul mouthed slave trader. John Newton went on to pen one of the most famous and well-loved songs of all time - "Amazing Grace" and to mentor William Wilberforce in his long battle to abolish the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
This year we are proud to announce the "Amazing Grace Festival 2013": 4 - 8 April in Buncrana, Co Donegal. As part of The Donegal Gathering, this special event will include music, arts and crafts, history, family fun and much more. Read more here.
Join us to celebrate Buncrana's link with a story that changed history. Against the stunning backdrop of Lough Swilly, enjoy all that "Amazing Grace Country" has to offer.
