WEDNESDAY 26 APRIL , WHITE’S HOTEL, 8pm
John Nangle will give the final lecture in the 2022/2023 series of talks. His lecture is entitled “ Some Memorials of the Dead from the South-East.” John is an expert Genealogist who gives both Advanced and Beginners Classes in the Peoples College in Coolcotts, Wexford. His other expertise is in our Graveyards, Headstones and all matters relating to Memorials to our deceased brethren. His lecture will give a clear insight into different styles of gravestones and the various decorations and inscriptions contained on these headstones. Along with various members of the North Wexford Historical Society they have logged and recorded most of the burials and headstones in graveyards and cemeteries throughout County Wexford, and particularly, in the Gorey hinterland. It should be a very informative and well-illustrated talk, and John’s distinct and humorous style will add to an enjoyable and enlightened lecture.
He proposes to have a follow-up visit to several Wexford town graveyards, possibly on the following Saturday morning, weather permitting, to re-enforce the various points and features of his talk.
