“The Burren through space and time: an illustrated talk”
with Professor Kevin Whelan
(Please note that the Tea Talk this month will be on the third Wednesday instead of the usual second Wednesday)
Professor Kevin Whelan is Director of the University of Notre Dame’s Dublin Global Gateway. He has authored or edited twenty books and more than one hundred articles, and he has lectured on Irish topics in fourteen countries. He was one of the editors of the bestselling Atlas of the Irish Rural Landscape. His most recent book Religion, landscape and Settlement: from Patrick to Present sold out in less than a month. Kevin has taken thousands of Notre Dame students to the Burren, his favourite place in Ireland outside of his native Wexford.
Kevin Whelan’s illustrated talk will focus on the historical and cultural context of the Burren, situating it in a national context, and establishing what is distinctive about it. The emphasis will be as much on people and places as on geology and botany and the talk will aim to be accessible, relevant and entertaining, while at the same time offering some new insights into this magnificent and globally-significant landscape.
The talk will start at the usual time of 8.30pm at Tubber hall but the kettle will be on at 8pm so you can grab a cuppa first.
Talks are open to non-members but are free to Burrenbeo Trust members and have a suggested donation of €5 for non-members. More information on how to become a Burrenbeo Trust member can be found here: https://burrenbeo.com/support-us/become-a-member/
