ONLINE VIDEO MEETING: MARCH 2021
Title: The Churches of the Liberties
Speaker: Paul Mullally
Time: 8pm, 10th March 2021
Many of the churches in central Dublin own their existence to the five liberties of Dublin. Some of them are also related to earlier Christian churches and settlements near Áth Cliath and Dubhlinn. This talk explores those churches, many of which no longer exist, which were in the Liberties or associated with them.

Speaker: Catherine Scuffil.
Time: 8pm, 10th February 2021
You may remember she spoke here previously on the subjects of Irish Place Names and the South Circular Road. It is nice to welcome her back.
Michael Flanagan was the Grandfather of former Taoiseach Liam Cosgrave, in his day what we now term a developer. I have heard this talk and it is excellent.
See you all on the 10th February.
In the meantime don’t forget Monday 1st is St Brigid’s Day, buy yourself some daffodils to provide a little cheer. Aoife
