The Cong Moytura Heritage Society will be hosting a talk by Alex Findlater about the taking of the surrenders at the end of Easter week 1916.

Alex is the author of a recent book about the surrenders, which is based on the papers of his grandfather, Captain Harry de Courcy-Wheeler. Captain de Courcy-Wheeler had the unenviable task of taking the surrenders of his fellow countrymen, Padraig Pearse, James Connolly, Michael Mallin, Countess Markiewicz and Thomas MacDonagh.

Admission to the talk is free of charge and all are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served. Donations to the work of the Society are welcome.
