17th January 2018 Lecture - Philip Barron, Man of Mystery by Áine Uí Fhoghlú

We are delighted to announce that we will be commencing our 2018 lecture season with a talk that is sure to be of immense interest called 'Philip Barron, Man of Mystery' by Áine Uí Fhoghlú.

Áine will offer an illustrated look at the life and achievements of Philip Barron of Stradbally who founded (probably) the first ever Irish language college in the country, in Bunmahon in 1835.

So who was Philip Barron, what was his contributiion to the area, and to the country?  What became of him and why is he not more widely known in Irish history?  Áine will be shedding light on these questions.

Áine Uí Fhoghlú lives in An Rinn with her family.  She has a number of poetry books to her credit and was a writer in residence with Co. Kilkenny VEC.  Áine has also won many awards for her poetry including the prestigious Irish language prize at Dún Laoghaire International Poetry Competition and the Michael Hartnett Poetry Prize.  She also has a keen interest in local history.

This looks like being a very interesting and enjoyable talk, and is not to be missed!
