Glin Library Event
Mark your diary for Tuesday 24th March in Glin Library. Professor Barry Conway, California, will be giving a talk on the “wonderful old souls who left the Glin area for Canada prior to the 1850s.” They had migrated to the Ottawa Valley in Ontario where Barry, three generations later, became the great grandson of “Red” Mick Conway, who was born in Glin in 1828, and Margaret Mulvihill, who was born between Glin and Newtownsandes in 1834. Barry, who visited the library last year, is paying a return visit and is willing to give a short talk on the Conway clan who left Glin in the early 1840s for the Ottawa Valley. He promises to bring some curious pictures of Red Mick and others. But to really drive up interest, he also promises to show how the Conway’s of Glin are related to Shania Twain! So be in Glin Library at 8 pm on Tuesday 24th March for an interesting evening. All welcome
The library will be closed on Tuesday 17th and Friday 20th.
