Launch of La Touche Seminar: Festival of History

The Society has helped to organise the 2017 La Touche Legacy Festival of History event which will kick off our autumn programme on 29/30 September. (See here for more information.)  It promises to be every bit as stimulating as its predecessors. Full details of the event will be available at the launch, which takes place on Monday, 29th May, at 7pm in Greystones Golf Club. The highlight of the evening will be Professor Michael Laffan’s talk on W T Cosgrave – not to be missed by
anyone with an interest in history or politics, so do come along.

Reading Greystones History

As part of this year’s Bealtaine Festival, Greystones Library is hosting a programme of readings by Greystones Archaeological & Historical Society on Thursday, 1 June, at 7pm. We’ll be catching glimpses of Greystones history through extracts from travellers’ tales, newspaper accounts, autobiography and verse, hearing some great stories, and meeting on the way heroes and holidaymakers, writers and suffragettes, a lady librarian and a future president, and of course the plain people of Greystones. Admission free, but booking essential. Details from http://www.wicklow.ie/greystones-library 

 

Our programme for the rest of 2017 is outlined below. More details to follow later.
