1 February 2022: Public Launch of ‘Heart and Soul of Montiaghs’ Book
Open Invitation to Public Launch of Book – “Heart and Soul of the Montiaghs”: A Collection of Poetry and Songs from the Montiaghs and Lurgan Area, by Paul Carville.
On Wednesday 1 February (7.30pm to 9pm) we are delighted to announce that our newly published book, ‘Heart and Soul of the Montiaghs’, compiled by Paul Carville and Norah McCorry, will be launched at an open invitation public event at Brownlow House. The book brings together a selection of a poems and songs written by local people over the course of 100 years between the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These hard-working people put pen to paper and eloquently conveyed what was going on in their lives and the local area, providing us with an invaluable social history of the time. In addition to the poetry and songs, the book also includes local history information and is beautifully illustrated with an array of historic and new photographs.
On the night a selection of poems will be read, while copies of the book will be available to purchase, with proceeds donated to charity.
