Outing to Inistioge & Woodstock 30/07/2023

 On Sunday 30 July 2023, at 2.00pm, join us for an outing to picturesque Inistioge, on the banks of the River Nore in south Kilkenny. The town's rich heritage reflects its medieval origins and shows the influence of the Tighe family of Woodstock House in the 18th and 19th centuries. 

Our outing will be led by Ben Murtagh, expert on Inistioge's archaeology and medieval history, and John Kirwan, who has extensively researched the role the Tighe family played in the later development of the town.

Outing to Creaden Head 23 July 2023

 For many years the late Noel McDonagh explored the archaeology of Creadan head, the striking peninsula at the mouth of Waterford Harbour. In recent years the Portalis Project, based in SETU, brought together a multidisciplinary team to build on this work researching the archaeology, geology and social history of the headland. On our outing next Sunday afternoon we have an opportunity to meet members of the team and hear about the research that they have been carrying out.

As parking is limited on the headland, and out of consideration for local residents, the Portalis Project have kindly organised a mini-bus to transfer members from the carpark at Holy Cross Church, Killea, Dunmore East to Creadan Head at 1:30 pm.
