Murroe-Boher Historical Society will hold a talk by John Hassett on Thursday, 9 February 2017 at 8.30p.m. sharp at the Muintir na Tíre Hall, Murroe. The talk is entitled “Were you ever up in Vaucluse?“ and traces the long-overlooked history of the Vaucluse Hunting Lodge from its beginnings as a playground of the gentry, to a farmer’s pleasure garden, to now forlorn ruin. Part of the talk will examine the origins of a local family who lived in rural Toorlougher in the early 1800s. Admission €5 to non-members (includes refreshments). All welcome.
