Delvin Historical Society recently enjoyed a talk by Professor Patrick O’Connor on “Evocations of Delvin” through poetry and memoir and the influences of his parents, grandparents, brothers, cousins etc. played in his upbringing in Delvin and Newcastle West.
The talk was most enjoyable as local Delvin residents remembered Patrick in his younger days and through his memoirs brought back “Happy Days”. Afterwards, tea & biscuits were served to a good crowd.
The Society’s next lecture on Thursday 20th November at 8.30pm in Carmel Gaffney’s will be given by Manchan Magan. Manchan will talk of family members including his grandmother Sighle Humphrey’s – former Cumann Na mBan President – “a prism through which to explore his family background history”.
All welcome, admission €3.
