Visit to Christ Church Cathedral. Nation 12
June 7 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Meet at Christ Church Cathedral, Christchurch Place, Dublin 8. A walking tour is being organised by a local historian, Sean O’Broin, who was a previous Executive Representative to AOUG. He will take us through the many historical landmarks of the area, for example, where the first performance of Handel’s Messiah took place, a view of the actual organ, effects of the Reformation on the area, an experience of the supernatural amongst the mummies’ remains at St Michans church. Many of Dublin’s most influential families from the 17th, 18th and 19th century are buried there. We expect to finish in the famous Temple Bar area for refreshments.
It is aimed to link this event with the 50th Anniversary of the OU Students Association. Please advise me if you are likely to attend, Mary Niblett – 0831223796. I will be carrying a copy of OMEGA on the day. Variations on what to cover can be agreed
