 Join us on Thursday, October 19, in the Muintir na Tíre Hall, Murroe, at 8.30 p.m. sharp, where Murroe Boher Historical Society will host Dr Julie McGrath who will be speaking on the nineteenth-century poet and social reformer, Aubrey de Vere, of Curraghchase House. Admission €5 to non-members (refreshments included). De Vere included Wordsworth, Tennyson and Newman among his friends. Wordsworth called his sonnets the most perfect of the age.  He is also remembered as a social reformer with his efforts to alleviate distress during the famine and his support for assisted emigration schemes. This talk will examine the ways in which his religious faith influenced his public and private life, his involvement in the Limerick lunatic asylum controversy in the 1860s, consideration of his involvement in the magistrate system and his views on the extension of local government in Ireland.
