For those with an interest in Local history, and in particular for anyone who has navigated the waters of Lough Ree, Saturday the 14th of November is a date to write in your Diary.
Marcus Connaughton of RTE Seascapes fame will be launching two publications by the renowned midland mariner and author Donal Boland at the Luan Gallery Athlone, on that date at 3.00pm.
Marcus will be accompanied by some other interesting speakers, and it promises to be an interesting and informative event
The event is open to anyone who would like to attend.
