David Pollock returns to do the second lecture of our series. People will remember his last two fascinating talks for the Museum Society. David is best known in this town for his work in St. John's Castle, Dungarvan and other digs around the town. He is an archaeologist and illustrator who picked up reconstruction drawing as a habit in Scotland, thirty years ago. In 1984 he took his first commission from Historic Scotland to illustrate panels for Jedburgh Abbey. He describes his life over the next ten years as a "Jekyll and Hyde" existence. This, because he was archaeologist for half of the time and reconstruction drawer for the other half.
David's work can be seen on the old wall of Penny's in Arundel Square in Waterford. In 1990 David moved to Ireland and spent most of the following ten years as archeologist with a few stray Scottish contacts thrown in. David's talents were recognised and he was commissioned by the National Monuments service to put together drawings of medieval Ferns Co.Wexford and this has led to a further batch of commissions for him. David's talks are well attended and a must for anybody with an interest in their County history.
David's talk takes place in the Town Hall on Wednesday October 19 at 8.pm. Admission is €5.
