The next lecture in the Dunhill History Lecture series will take place on Thursday 2nd February 2017 at 8pm in the Dunhill Education Centre. The speaker will be Julian Walton and his subject is 'Blest be the hour which gave my Sarah birth: verses to a young lady'.
On either side of the fireplace in the inner hall at Curraghmore House hang two gigantic portraits. To the right is the celebrated Louisa, Marchioness of Waterford, chatelaine of Curraghmore during the Famine. Much has been written about her. To the left is her far less well known sister in law Lady Sarah Beresford, Countess of Shrewsbury. This is her story.
This looks like being a very interesting lecture which is not be be missed!
