Proceedings will begin at 2 p.m. with a talk by David McBurnie and Grainne Keays, reflecting on Bishop Jebb’s time in Abington. After the talk there will be a field trip to Abington cemetery, the site of the old Abington Church, and then on to the scutching mill at nearby Millbank House. At the mill, Dan Dinneen and Thomas Holmes will give short talks on Jebb’s contribution to the flax industry and employment in the area. Finally, the group will adjourn for refreshments to Pa McGrath’s in Boher at approximately 4.30 p.m. Admission to church is free with €6 charge per head at McGraths. All welcome.
