Heritage Week is almost upon us. Running from the 20th -28th August it will see hundreds of historical and cultural events taking place across Ireland. I am delighted to announce I am speaking at three events.

Castlecomer LibraryOn Tuesday August 23 p.m. I will be launching my book and presenting a talk on the Black Death in Castlecomer Library at 7pm. I have set up a facebook event here where you follow updates. If you have listened to the Communism and Coal Series you can make a day of it. Visit the mining experience in the discovery park, have some of the amazing food there before heading to the talk that evening.

the-main-guard_364486Next up is Clonmel at 7-30 p.m. Wednesday 24 August where I will be talking about prostitution in Medieval Ireland. I will be returning to this podcast where I looked at the life of one Irish medieval prostitute Cristiana Sadelhackere.

If you cant make these events, my book 1348: A Medieval Apocalypse – The Black Death in Ireland is now available through Amazon.
