Saturday 26th November saw 18 of us assemble for a delicious lunch in the above club, situated in St Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2 followed by a most interesting lecture by Dr John Flood of the Department of English, University of Groningen, The Netherlands on “Women’s history and Kilcash”. It was hard for those of us who know the small Tipperary village of Kilcash to imagine its importance and that of its women in the 17th and 18th centuries.
