St Kevin's Reformatory operated in Glencree from 1859-1940. We invite anyone with memories of it, former relatives, teachers, caretakers, workers who had associations to come and share it's history.
This event is the start of an exploration of the historic heritage of the Glencree Centre with particular reference to St. Kevin's. The afternoon will be a relaxed story-telling circle where participants will be encouraged to share their memories and a chance to explore the site with well-known local historians as part of Heritage Week.
