Clane Local History Group
Clane Local History Group is part of the national celebrations for Heritage Week, which runs this year from 18 August to 26 August next.
As announced earlier this year, our members were eagerly looking forward to a planned visit to Courtown House Kilcock. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we sincerely regret that this visit scheduled for Saturday afternoon, 18 August has had to be cancelled. We hope to set up an alternate event in the future and we are very happy to assure our members that our second planned activity is totally unaffected by this announcement.
During Heritage Week and in conjunction with librarian Jacqueline McCabe, John Noonan and Brendan Cullen will present a talk on the history of many of the buildings and people of Main Street Clane. This talk is scheduled for Tuesday 21 August in the Clane Community Library at 8:00pm. There has been much Interest in this talk since the Group supported a number of local community initiatives by exhibiting some of their unique archive of historic photographs of life in Clane at local events over the past few years. This talk will add much new and interesting information in a similar vein and as usual, all are welcome.
