For CULTURE NIGHT, next Friday 20th, we are presenting a special event entitled -
"When Olive met Stuart: Love and War in the Big House"
August 1921 in Ireland - a ceasefire has been called to the The War of Independence. 26 year old Olive Pakenham Mahon, a war widow and young mother falls in love with the commander of a British Army detachment stationed in Strokestown Park. Three months later the couple are married.
This event will be a dramatic retelling of this love story, using recently unearthed letters and documents from the Strokestown Archive, and set against the backdrop of World War One, The War of Independence and the Big House.
Space will be limited for this event so pre-booking is advisable. Contact 071 9633013 or email for details.
