  1. Yes that would be nice. I’m not sure to be honest, I don’t think they have done that in the past. The Society is different to this website – I was just passing on the information about the talks – but maybe there could be a way to get something going. If I get to them, I’ll try to take notes so that I could give a summary at any rate!


  2. Frank Tracey spoke last night on Glencree, covering the Military Road, barracks and reformatory, German graveyard, Operation Shamrock and the Centre for Peace and Reconciliation. He has produced a small booklet which he sold after the talk; it has photos and some text covering all of these topics; it is in Spar and I assume can be obtained from Glencree Centre as well.
