Annual John Devoy Memorial Event

Annual John Devoy Memorial Event: William Roantree, Kildare Fenian and the Devoy Connection

Each year an event is held in Naas to commemorate John Devoy. As you know his statue was erected at Poplar Square in 2015.

This year’s event will be held in Naas Library on 18 September at 7.00 p.m.

It is a lecture titled, William Roantree, Kildare Fenian and the Devoy Connection.

It will be delivered by Michael Kenny. Michael is an historian and former Keeper, Art and Industry Division at the National Museum of Ireland. His book, ‘Brothers in Arms’ tells the remarkable story of William and James Roantree, from Leixlip, Co. Kildare and was launched in Leixlip Community Library in February.

Michael is a very entertaining and interesting speaker so this is an event not to be missed!
