1916 to 007 imageHeritage Week lecture

During Easter week 1916, Ms Madge Leslie wrote to her cousin, Captain Cecil Leslie, who was serving in France, describing her first-hand experience of the Rebellion in Dublin.  Recent research into her letter by Ian Elliott, owner of Corravahan House, Drung, reveals a tale of tragedy, intrigue, murder and an extraordinary literary connection.  Ian will present the story, during Heritage Week 2016, on Monday 22nd August, at Corravahan House, at 8pm, in a lecture entitled, “From 1916 to 007: Miss Madge Leslie’s account of the Easter Rising in Dublin”.  As seating is limited, booking is advisable.
