La Touche World War I seminar
The 26th La Touche Seminar will go ahead this year and is to be held in Greystones during the September weekend of 26-28.
World War 1 (1914-1918) will be the theme of the seminar, featuring 'The Great War Roadshow' with Dr. Myles Dungan.
Seminar will change this year according to chairman of the La Touche Legacy George Jones in view of the new rules that will apply to conferences and seminars.
In order to meet the change there will be a much bigger focus on the local communities and indeed on local historical associations throughout the county but the committee hope to maintain the relationship built up with Ards Borough Council over the past 20 years.
George Jones announced that this year's Seminar will be organised in association with the Greystones Archaeological and Historical Society and the County Wicklow Library Service.
