OUR FRIENDS in the En­niskerry His­tory So­ci­ety are hold­ing a very in­ter­est­ing lec­ture of lo­cal in­ter­est in the Pow­er­scourt Arms Ho­tel, En­niskerry Vil­lage this Thurs­day night at 8-30 pm.

Lo­cal his­to­rian and au­thor Liam Clare will out­line the story of “En­clos­ing the Com­mons at the Sugar Loaf Moun­tains 1820 - 1870” which will cover the en­clos­ing of the com­mon­age on these moun­tains dur­ing this pe­riod.

As Liam will re­veal, this process was marked with anti-en­clo­sure ri­ots at the Big Su­gar­loaf and in­di­vid­ual small en­croach­ments on the Lit­tle Sugar Loaf. All wel­come to at­tend. Ad­mis­sion is just €3 and all are wel­come.
