September 2014 Newsletter
Here is the information on the September and October conferences of Irish Heritage Quebec. These events will be held at 19:30 in McMahon Hall, 1145 De Salaberry in Quebec City. We hope to see members and guests in great numbers.
On Tuesday, October 14, Steve Cameron of Coirneal Cealteach of Sainte Agathe will give a conference on John O’Farrell (1826-1892), the 19th century Quebec City lawyer, politician, Irish Nationalist and more. From success on the legal front and in politics to questionable tactics and dirty tricks, he remains ever the mystery to us today, despite his profile at the time. Never far from controversy, it is perhaps his Irish Nationalism that lends the clue to some comprehension. Join us to hear Steve Cameron tell this story of ‘one of our own’, who lived and died here, but whose presence was felt across the country.
