Book Launch

The book has arrived and is ready for launch.

The Book Launch is scheduled for 5 pm, Saturday 30th April in the Parochial Hall, Enniskerry. That is this building, the one with the old telephone box outside. I’m not quite sure what is meant to happen at these things, so am open to suggestion, but the plan is to kick off at 5 pm with some nibbles and chat, have a short talk about some of the content of the book and then have the formal launch of the book, finishing up at about 6 pm.

  1. I have just found your site, what a shame 3 days too late for the book launch.
    Anyway the reason I was on the site, is because I have just discovered my Great Great great grandparents were Laurence and Elizabeth Seery, and they are buried in Batterstown, Co. Meath. They were from Powderlough Co. Meath. Laurence died 10th August 1825 aed 84 and Elizabeth died 24 December 1834 age 92. Their sons were John Seery and Nicholas Seery who died August 3rd 1842 age 70. I was actually this morning looking on the internet for a Michael J. Seery, who died 1st September 1890 age 26 years. He is buried in Glasnevin (so is John Seery actually), but Michael has a special grave, and “he was a member of virtually every political , cultural and social organisation” from the book: – Dead and Buried in Dublin, An illustrated guide to the Historic Graves of Dublin.
    Love to hear from you.
    Kind Regards,

  2. Hi Ann,

    Thanks for comment. Launch is next Saturday 30th April so there’s still time! Delighted to hear about Seerys, will be in touch regarding that.


    • Hi Michael
      Delighted to hear from you. I will be there, because the book sounds wonderful anyway! Even the cover makes me want to read. I am delighted to see I am a week ahead of myself…. if you know what I mean. So time is not going so fast after all!
      Thank you so much for your kind reaply.

  3. Hi Michael

    Good luck with your book launch. Can’t get over to ‘the Emerald Isle’ – work issues :(, but again, the best of luck and I will be ordering a copy as part of our family history.

    • Hi Lorraine,

      Many thanks for your comment and wishes. That’s a pity you can’t make it, but I hope you enjoy the book! I’ll be doing a bit more work on the McNulty’s this summer so will let you know if I come across anything interesting,

      All the best,

  4. Michael, that’s so kind, as to take a personal interest in my family.
    I’ve been told that I’m a McNulty, through and through……God bless those genes.

    My Grandmother was Wilde before she was married, that’s by name only lol :).
    Could I be related to the famous ‘Oscar’???

    Also, ‘Old Mother Riley’…was that Arthur Lucan?? I’ve been told there is a family connection somewhere.

    Maybe this info might help a little

    Kindest regards,

    Have a great day tomorrow!

  6. Hi

    • Hi Louise,

      If you are near Enniskerry/Bray, you can get the book in Kennedy’s of Enniskerry and I think there are some in Dubray books in Bray. Alternatively, the book is published by The History Press Ireland, so if you ask in any bookshop, they will be able to order it in for you. If you are abroad, the easiest thing is probably to order it online. Let me know if you have any problems. Hope you enjoy it,
