Guest Speaker 6 Feb 2018; Owen Smith: Two Smiths of Carrick

KILMORE HISTORICAL SOCIETY GENERAL MEETING
TUESDAY 6 FEBRUARY 2018

The first General Meeting for the year is on Tuesday 6th February at 7.30 pm in the Kilmore Courthouse – everyone is welcome.

Owen Smith is our guest speaker, presenting “Two Smiths of Carrick”. He will tell the story of two young Irish men who venture to the antipodes from their home town of Carrickmacross, in County Monaghan, in the north of Ireland at a time when their country was reeling from the deprivations of the Great Famine and British occupation.

One is from a privileged background and is soon teaching as Classics Master at Scotch College; the second a blacksmith, becomes a successful farmer and raises a family in Kilmore. We look forward to hearing Owen tell their stories.

The meeting will begin at 7:30 and end at approximately 9 – 9:30, with time for questions and general business.

Supper will be served after the meeting and all are welcome to participate.
