Murroe-Boher Historical Society – It is that time of year again when we resume our winter talks. Our first speaker of this new season will be David McBurnie, who will discuss “Florence Barrington: A Year in Russia (1916-1917).” Like other young women of her age and class, Florence Barrington (of Clonkeen House and Clonshavoy) volunteered to serve as a nurse during the 1914-18 war. She travelled to Russia, where she worked in a field hospital on the Eastern Front. This talk centres on her work in difficult and challenging circumstances, drawing extensively on her diary, which gives a vivid, often humorous, account of the courage and commitment of a resourceful young woman in a time of war.  The talk begins as 8.30 sharp on Thursday next, October 18. Admission – €5 to non-members. All welcome.
