…and Frank Whearity launches new book
(Skerries Historical Society Meeting – 8th October 2013)
The committee were elected as follows:
Chair: Stephanie Bourke
Vice Chair: Carmel Power
Hon. Secretary: Oona Roycroft
Hon. Treasurer: Brendan Grimes
Hon Archivist: Joe Murray
Hon. Librarian: Maree Baker
PRO: George Hand
Other committee members: Marie Bashford Synnott, Geraldine Clarke, Hugh Halpin, Pauline Hanlon, Gerard Shannon, Elaine Skehan
No member is more dynamic or determined in his pursuit of historical detail than Frank Whearity , so it was with enormous pleasure that, following the AGM, we welcomed him to launch his book, The Easter Rising of 1916 in north County Dublin: A Skerries Perspective.
Frank’s book is the culmination of years of research which also earned him his M.A. degree last year. All the copies of the book were snapped up within an hour of the launch. If you missed out, copies are still available from Paddy in Skerries Bookshop, from Skerries Mills or online.
