Talk: 'The History of The Asgard 1905 to 2014'
The Clontarf Historical Society would like to present a fascinating talk by Pat Murphy.
Now that the intensity of Battle of Clontarf commemorations has ended, Autumn brings with it a selection of talks that cover a wide selection of topics that should prove to be both interesting and enjoyable.
Pat Murphy presents the life of this famous yacht in Irish history: from her launch in 1905, to her conservation today in Collin’s Barrack Museum. Her 23 day voyage to collect guns and ammunition for the Irish Volunteers and the landing of them in Howth in July 1914 is described in detail with unique photographs.
THIS EVENT FOLLOWS THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY AGM @7:45pm
