Local historian, Paul Cooke, will launch his book, “A History of Christianity in Newbridge”.

Timed to coincide with the 1500th anniversary of St. Conleth’s death, patron saint of the parish, this history includes an account of the life of St. Conleth, a history of all the churches in the parish, the parish priests who served here, the religious institutions that have been an integral part of the parish, and inventories of all the graveyards of the parish.

The book will be launched by Brian McCabe, a local historian who has documented many local and national graveyards over the years.

Copies of the book will be on sale on the night, price €25.

All welcome!
