A talk by Tommy Mooney

Brugha captured on his mode of transport

Waterford County Museum are delighted to welcome back to the Museum, Ardmore’s Tommy Mooney for this our final talk for 2022.The title of Tommy’s talk clearly illustrates  the profile of a man who  was willing and indeed  died for what he believed in. Brugha was willing to lay down his life for his principles. He was certainly a man that can be called a true hero. And, we sometimes forget his and his family’s connection with this area. Tommy Mooney, of course is no stranger to researching and writing about men like Brugha, we can be thankful to him for such books as ‘Cry of the Curlew’ and ‘The Déise Divided.’  Both which resurrected many local heroes who we also seem to have forgotten. Tommy’s talk takes place at the Museum on Friary Street at 7.30pm  next Wednesday 23rd November. As usual all are welcome. Admittance is just €5.
