Historical Society members enjoy last meeting of 2013
IT IS hard to believe that another year has passed and the members of the Kilmacanogue History Society prepare for their last lecture of 2013. Titled 'Tales from a Country Churchyard' it will feature the interesting lives of some Dargle Valley residents and will be presented by Judy Cameron.
In this extensively illustrated presentation Judy, she will bring to life some of the interesting people interred in the graveyard in Enniskerry, and explain how digging up information about them served to construct a portrait of society in the area in the late 19th century.
There are two strands to the story - one group stems from the diary written by a Powerscourt curate in the 1870s, and the other of more recent inhabitants of this most beautiful plot of ground.
Judy Cameron has been the organist and archivist of St. Patrick's Church, Enniskerry for nigh on twenty years. The investigative work she has done in developing the graveyard trails provides a regular feature in the village.
So come along to The Glenview Hotel in the Glen of the Downs on Tuesday 3rd December at 8-30pm, Entry is just €3 (€2 for members) and all are welcome. You can visit the Societies Website for more details on kilmacanoguehistorysociety.com
