Sunday 16th July – Curraghmore Events

Sunday 16th July marks the three hundredth wedding anniversary of Katherine de la Poer of Curraghmore and Marcus Beresford.  As part of the Comeraghs Wild Festival, the family is holding a series of talks in the upper hall and using the dining room for morning coffee and afternoon tea between talks.

The first lecture will be at 11am ‘The Powers of Curraghmore’ by Mr Kenneth W. Nicholls, one of the most widely respected Irish historians of the twentieth century, followed by morning coffee in the dining room.  Next will be ‘16th July 1717 the marriage that changed Irish history’ by Julian Walton.  Julian has delighted radio listeners with historical anecdotes about things that happened in and around Waterford.

The lecture at 2pm will be ‘a most magnificent place, the evolution of the gardens and demesne at Curraghmore’ by William Fraher, Curator of Waterford County Museum, who has a particular interest in the history of Waterford country houses and gardens, followed by afternoon tea in the dining room.  Then there will be a walk through the gardens with the head gardener Michael Murphy and William Fraher.  This will be a great opportunity to ask questions and get an insight into managing the gardens and plans for the future.
