January Meeting

Our January meeting will take place on Wednesday, 11th January in the Irish and Local Studies Library at the usual time of 7:30 p.m.

The speaker will be Dr Elaine Farrell from the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics at Queen’s University. The title of her talk is “‘She was large in the family way a week before the fair’: The infant murder mystery in Markethill”.

Elaine contributed to the Mad or Bad exhibition currently on show at Armagh County Museum which explores mental health, crime and gender in Ireland during the last half of the nineteenth century. The exhibition focuses on how and why women who had committed crimes were treated differently from men.
