Murroe Boher Historical Society will present this illustrated talk looking at early Irish Christianity on Thursday 15th of March in the Muintir Na Tire Hall Murroe Co Limerick at 8.30. Alf Monaghan’s illustrated talk looks at the history of early Irish Christianity from a different perspective – a Mediterranean perspective. It provides a tantalizing glimpse under the veil of history. It asks many questions and confounds some of the accepted theories about the history of early Christianity in Ireland. Recent Irish discoveries such as the Fadden More Psalter, an Egyptian papyrus found in an ancient book of psalms from a Tipperary bog, are clues pointing to a more substantial eastern Mediterranean influence. It traces links with ancient Egypt, connects Irish monasticism with the desert fathers and the early Irish Church with the Coptic Church. All are welcome

Community First Responder Boher are holding their AGM on Wednesday 14th March at 8pm, in Boher Community Centre.  Everyone with an interest in Community First Responders are encouraged to attend as there have been a number of changes since CFR Boher was set up in 2016.  Even if you are not available as a volunteer, your experience could be very valuable to the smooth operation of CFR Boher.
