In the last a series of monthly talks to celebrate Kilcullen 700, Mary Orford will present the highlights of her “Memory Monday” sessions with local people on a trip down memory lane, that were held in Kilcullen Town Hall throughout 2019. There will be stories gathered from the participants and images scanned at the session presented as part of Mary’s presentation.
“Kilcullen 700”, is a celebration of the present town’s origins, seven hundred years ago, in the construction of the first stone bridge on the site of the present Kilcullen Bridge, which spans the Liffey in the heart of the town.
These events take place on the first Tuesday of the month throughout 2019 (except August) in the Town Hall at 8pm.
Everyone is welcome. Come early for chat, tea/coffee and biscuits.
