Historic Dún Laoghaire
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council
Meeting at the Queen Victoria Fountain, Queen's Road., Co. Dublin – Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown
20 August, 7pm - 8:30am
Join me for an insight into the Dan O'Sullivan archives. A chance to share family stories, from Kerry and further afield. We will discuss the mighty Matchmaker from the Kerry mountains.
The power of matchmaking in by-gone days is slowly being lost in Ireland today. With the land I thee wed was Dan O'Sullivan's way if matching couples. He loved the land, hated the thought of people emigrating from Kerry and set out to keep the youth in Ireland. Unfortunately the Church did not see it in the same light and did not encourage this. However, Dan continued with his plan and matched many a couple in the Munster region.
