Historical Society

The next meeting of the North Wexford Historical Society will be held on Friday, April 26, at 8p.m. in Gorey Library. The guest speaker will be Mr. Ted Barrington, former Irish Ambassador to the U.K. and native of Gorey. He will speak about the Good Friday Agreement and also his memories of Gorey. Everyone welcome. Admission - members free, non-members 5 euro. The Society would like to apologize to members and all interested parties for the cancellation of last month's talk at short notice. This was necessitated by the flooding on the N11 near Bray which caused problems for the speaker who had to travel from Dublin. It is hoped to reschedule this talk for some future date.
