2019, Programme of Talks
October 17th, Thursday-The Bray Cualann Historical Society is once again proud to host the well-known and respected author/historian Joseph EA Connell Jnr. This will be Joseph’s second visit to Bray and he will present a talk based on his latest book “The Shadow War”, Michael Collins and the Politics of Violence.
Joseph is a leading authority on the period of the 1916 Rising, the War of Independence and the Irish Civil war. He certainly impressed his Bray audience with his unscripted encyclopedic knowledge of these topics during last year’s talk to the Society.
This talk may be of special interest to teachers and secondary school students studying the War of Independence for the Junior Cycle or Leaving Certificate, and offers a unique opportunity to discuss this topic with such an authority on the subject.
November 21th, Thursday– Fassaroe and related Crosses, by Dr. Rachel Moss (Department of the History of Art and Architecture,,
Trinity College). (The Royal Hotel, Bray, 8pm).
Our monthly talks take place in the Royal Hotel, Main Street, Bray at 8pm
Admission €5, members free.
