The first County Museum Talk of 2011 will take place on Wednesday 19th January. Museum curator, William Fraher, will present "The Bad Times: The War of Independence/Civil War & The Big House in Co. Waterford."
William has carried out in depth research in this area and believes it is very interesting to look at the topic from an Anglo-Irish standpoint. It is certain to be a fascinating talk with new insights drawn from recently unearthed documents. "The Big House(s)"of the title include Mount Congreve, Curraghmore, Gardenmorris and Lismore Castle among others.
The talk is open to all and will be held in the Town Theatre, St. Augustine St, Dungarvan at 8.00pm.
Upcoming talks in the lecture programme include:
Aspects of Co Waterford's Heritage by Bernadette Guest on 16th February at 8pm and Ballynatray House and Garden by Neil Porteous on 23rd March at 8pm.
