Book Launch – Four Offaly Saints
August 27, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Book launch: Four Offaly Saints by Pádraig Ó Riain
Followed by a presentation on these Offaly saints by Professor Ó Riain, Professor Emeritus of Early and Medieval Irish at University College Cork. Professor Ó Riain was with us about six years ago when his best-selling Dictionary of Irish Saints was published. This is your chance to hear him again, or for the first time. He is a charming speaker with huge learning that he wears lightly. He will be signing copies of this unique book on the night. This is the latest book in the growing Offaly Collection. Be sure to get one while stocks last. Now available at Offaly History Centre or online. Member’s discount 10%. Mr Danny Owens, chairman of Offaly County Council will launch the book.
