Event Details

The Old Dundalk Society as part of its on-going Golden Jubilee Celebrations are delighted to announce the first in its series of Spring Lectures for 2015 “The Exceptional Summer of 1933

Nineteen thirty-three was a crucial year in World history and that summer was exceptionally good. This is the story of a brief holiday romance illuminated by letters and photographs that allow us, in so far as that is possible, to revisit that time, and see our parents or grandparents and their friends as they enjoyed the sunshine — oblivious of what was to come for the world and for themselves…

The lecture will take place at the County Museum, Jocelyn Street, Dundalk on Tuesday 17th February commencing at 8.00P.M.

This lecture will be delivered by James (Jim).P. Gosling. Jim, a Dundalk native, was born in 1944, grew up between Hill Street and Ladywell Terrace. He attended St Malachy’s and the Christian Brothers schools (Dundalk). Jim, lectured at NUI Galway for many years, although a scientist by profession, since his retirement from teaching he has pursued a variety of literary and historical projects.

A must attend lecture. All are welcome, voluntary contribution at the door.
