Brenan family relatives visit Museum

Geraldine Stenson presenting the antique christening robe to Willie Fraher, curator

We were delighted to welcome Geraldine Stenson and her husband Rod who travelled from Scotland.  Geraldine is a descendant of the noted Brenan family of Dungarvan who were cyclists, photographers and local historians.  The curator showed them the recent donations of Brenan “memorabilia” and the cup for the first challenge cycle race which took place in Dungarvan in 1869.

Geraldine presented the museum with an antique christening gown which has been in the Brenan family for generations.
