Co. Roscommon Historical and Archaeological Society, in association with Roscommon County Council, present the society's first Decade of Centenaries lecture, by Éamon Ó Cuiv.
The lecture will take place at 8.30 p.m. on THURSDAY, 13th JUNE, 2019, in The Percy French Hotel ... There will be no charge on the door for this lecture, so feel free to bring friends and as the lecture will be held in the ballroom there will be lots of space.
The lecture is entitled, ‘Éamon De Valera – A Personal Perspective’ ... Éamon Ó Cuiv is the grandson of Fianna Fáil founder and former Taoiseach and President of Ireland, Éamon De Valera. Mr. Ó Cuiv synopsises his lecture, “My talk will be a historical talk on Éamon De Valera, but it will be flavoured by the perspective of a family member. I was 25 years of age when he died and therefore I knew him well. Furthermore, I would have heard a lot about him from my Mother, who died in 2012 and was full of fascinating insights into him”.
Beautiful and historic Strokestown, a focal point of Ireland's Hidden Heartlands, is perfectly situated halfway across Ireland:
* approximately 90 minutes from the hustle & bustle of Dublin (and Ireland's Ancient East) and Galway (on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way).
* just 40 minutes from Ireland West Airport in Knock.
