Pat Power to give guest historical lecture

HISTORIAN Pat Power will be the guest speaker at the next talk in the Wicklow Historical Society's series of winter lectures.

Mr. Nolan, from Arklow, will deliver a talk on 'Why Wicklow is Wicklow.'

This includes a look at the Genealogical and topographical heritage and history of the county, evolving land and seascapes. He will explain how geology impact on history and heritage in the county. He also asks why do we have different accents in Wicklow and wonders if there is oil to be found in Wicklow?

Pat will also look at how the Ice Age influenced wind farms, our offshore islands, geology and war and peace, as well as examining the sources of everything from flint to gold found in the county.

The talk in St. Patrick's National School on January 29 at 8 p.m. is free of charge and everyone is welcome.

A donation box will be available for voluntary donations to help offset society costs.
