April 26, 2016 Recent visitor to the museum

Recent Visitor to the museum

We were delighted to have a lovely visitor to the museum recently. Alice O'Byrne from Waterford Road, Kilkenny called in to us to make a donation.
She donated two beautiful medals to the museum. They were medals awarded to Edmond O'Connor, Millstreet, Modeligo, who died on March 28, 1971.
One of the medals is  from 1939-1946. It is a Cósanta Aitiúil medal with ribbon. The other medal is a Cogadh na Saoirse medal with ribbon.

We gratefully accepted the medals and they have been catalogued and added to our archive and will be available for future generations to enjoy.

Thank you Alice for your donation.

Saturday, April 30 Waterford Men in the 1916 Rising in Dublin.

Waterford men in the 1916 Rising in Dublin

Dr. Pat McCarthy

An illustrated talk by Dr. Pat McCarthy

Venue: Dungarvan Library

Date: Saturday, April 30

Time: 11.30 am

There is no entry fee and all are very welcome.

Pat McCarthy is now no stranger to Dungarvan and in conjunction with Dungarvan Library, we are delighted to welcome him once again to the town. Pat's talk on this occasion will cover the experiences of the Volunteers from Waterford who fought in the GPO, Boland's Mill, the Four Courts, the South Dublin Union and Ashbourne during Easter Week. These were men like Thomas Walsh of Knockanore who was sentenced to death for his part in the fighting.
It will also look at Waterford men serving in the British Army who fought against the rebels, men like Joseph Ridgway of Waterford City, the British Army doctor who treated James Connolly after the surrender. The contribution of men from Waterford City and County to the momentous events of Easter Week is largely unknown.
This is an opportunity to learn about them and who better to deliver that information than the very colourful Pat McCarthy.

Look forward to seeing you there.
