“Newbridge, 1918: while Empires fall and the war comes to an end …”

As people protested against conscription and World War 1 drew to a close, life continued as normal in Newbridge, somewhat. In an illustrated talk, Raphael Ryan will look at what we got up to in Newbridge during these last twelve months of the war…marriages, auctions, garden fetes, appearances before the Petty Sessions, the effects of the flu and much more.

All welcome!
