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
