New Series of Local History Talks at Ballymoney Town Hall

1 Mins read

The eagerly awaited new series of local history talks by S.Alex Blair begins on Thursday 11th February in Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Ballymoney Town Hall at 8pm.

The series, entitled ‘Call to Arms’, explores the many calls to arms which echoed throughout the early years of the twentieth century. The talk looks at the establishment of the Ulster Volunteer Force and the Irish National Volunteers and gives a powerful insight into a time when people felt they had to resort to extreme measures in defence of things they held dear.

Admission is £2 and includes refreshments. The series continues on 16th March when Mr Blair will be providing a background to the Easter Rising 1916, and concludes on 6th April when he will be focussing on Gallipoli and the Somme. For further information please contact Ballymoney Town Hall on 028 2766 0230.
