Enjoy a slice of history with our December Talks

We invite you to join us for our series of talks for December & January starting on Zoom on Monday 14th December at 8pm.

 The talks will be given by our member, Seamus Murphy who has an interesting story to tell about magistrate and landlord Meredith Chambre of Dromintee, South Armagh, now Slieve Gullion Courtyard.

Seamus is an active researcher of local history and landscape and recently took part in the programme “Who do you think you are” featuring actress Liz Carr of “Silent Witness” who came to find out about her roots and discovered how her great great great grandfather was involved in an attack on Chambre in 1852 supposedly by the ‘Ribbonmen’ of south Armagh.

This episode is available to view here.

The story tells how the attack resulted in heavy reprisals on the local population and of the intrigue surrounding the attempted murder. You may like to watch the film, Black 47, set in Famine times which features similar events and provides an excellent context for the talk.
