Wexford Historical Society, Dr George Hadden Memorial Lecture.

The Wexford side of the Blackstairs 1600- 1900: an illustrated lecture

Professor Kevin Whelan Director of the University of Notre Dame Dublin Global Gateway.

This lecture will cover the historical experience  of the Wexford slopes of the Backstairs  looking at the area stretching from Bunclody through Rathnure down to New Ross. It will explore how society and settlement evolved in the period  after 1600, and look at the distinctive lifestyle that evolved as an adaptation to taming the mountains. The lecture will be heavily illustrated,  using maps and other images to  explain the historical and environmental context.
