Fachtna O'Donovan will give an illustrated talk titled “Beara Casualties 1916 – 1923: Forgotten Stories of the Revolutionary Years”. The talk will recount the stories of 21 casualties from the Beara peninsula from the 1916 Rising to the end of the Civil War, stories which were either forgotten or not spoken of over the century since. The casualties included two women and a 13 year old boy.
Fachtna is a member of the Castletownbere Historical Society and is highly regarded as a speaker with extensive knowledge of his material.
This talk will take place in the Christian Fellowship Church on Monday, September 25th at 8PM. It is free for members of Bantry Historical & Archaeological Society, and €5 for non-members. All are welcome.
