Armagh in O’Connor’s Time

johnoconnorThis talk by our Chairperson Mary McVeigh is part of the John O’Connor Literary Festival and it brings back to life the city of the 1940s and 50s which John O’Connor knew and loved. Remarkably, he would recognise much of the city today. Mary fills in the gaps where historic areas, including Banbrook Hill, Mill Row and other streets, have disappeared. A fascinating insight into growing up and working in Armagh between the wars and post-WWII.

The talk will be held in the  Irish and local Studies Library at 2.30–3.30pm on Friday 4th November. Admission is free.
