On Wednesday 14th of October we will have a very interesting talk titled BRÚ NA BÓINNE AND THE DROUGHT. The speaker will be John Dolan, one of our members.  You may remember that we had a considerable drought 2 years ago and it revealed additional remains at Newgrange. This talk will illustrate many of these findings and their wonder.

Message to members from Aoife O’Tierney
Thank you very much for your support last Wednesday for the first attempt using Zoom for our talks. The numbers who looked in far exceeded the expectations of the committee. We had about 40 watching. Personally I would like to thank all those who contacted afterwards. Now we certainly intend to continue.
