Future activities

Impact of COVID-19 Virus

Following advice issued by the Government concerning the COVID-19 virus, all the Society's activities have been postponed until further notice. Keep well, and watch this space for news about rescheduled events.

Wicklow Women

Looking through the Wicklow Heritage website you'll find a lot of material on not-so-well known Wicklow women who have made a difference. See, for instance, these articles on Nurse Mary Hayden, on female stockbroker Oonagh Keogh, and on national school teacher Mary Peoples:

 

These highlight three lesser-known women, but a trawl through the Wicklow Heritage pages will bring up much more on local 'celebrities' such as barrister Averil Deverell, climber/author/photographer Lizzie Le Blond, and Ladies' Land League leader Anna Parnell. 

 

Finally, but not least, don't forget to come back regularly to our own website. All nine of our journals are now fully available online - you'll find lots in their pages of interest, including of course much more about 'our Wicklow women'. Click here to have a browse.

 

Talks and Visits

Outside of COVID-19 restrictions, see above, our Talks take place in the Family Centre next door to the Holy Rosary Church in Greystones. Talks normally begin at 8.00pm . A small charge is made to cover the cost of hiring a room.

Our Visits (normally) occur on Sundays throughout summer. Start times vary. Keep an eye of this page for the most up-to-date information.
