The next talk in the Roundwood Historical Society’s 2018 Series will take place on Wednesday, 12th September 2018 at 8pm in the Roundwood Parish Hall.

The talk is based on the book “Aghowle: where the divil ate the tinker”, written by Margaret Connolly.

Margaret published this book on the history of the townland of Aghowle and its farming community in late 2017.

Aghowle is located approximately 1 mile from Moneystown and 4 miles from Ashford village.  Margaret grew up on a small farm in Aghowle where ancestors on her grandmother’s side had lived since the early 1800’s. Margaret will discuss the social history of Aghowle based on her intimate knowledge of the families who farmed there over the years.  Her account is based largely on her own experience and on the recorded memories of her own family and others who lived in the area. The book records a way of life that is now almost completely disappeared and highlights the importance of recording our own local history before it is lost forever.  The talk will include a display of over 100 photographs from the book.

We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 12th September at 8pm. The entrance fee for members is €3 and for non-members is €5 – payable at the door.
