Monday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m.- Gary O’Brien will give a presentation on the Irish settlements of Ste-Brigitte-de-Laval and Saint-Dunstan-du-Lac-Beauport. Once referred to as the Waterloo settlement, many of the settlers had to come to Québec during the great migration following the end of the Napoleonic wars. Refreshments will be served and parking stubs for Îlot St. Patrick will be validated. Members and friends are invited to attend. For further information phone Irish Heritage Quebec at 418-704-3404.
