“Lisnawilly” Historical Shared Affair

Cu Chulainn, St Bridget and King William:
30th August 2012 in the Lisnawilly House

Louth Women’s Network promoted the cohesive voice of rural women in building inclusivity in a shared future.  A one day event was held on the 30th Aug in Lisnawilly embracing the three historical legends; St Bridget, King William and Cu Chulainn and their shared linkages with Lisnawilly House, Dundalk.  At present the Lisnawilly house is owned by Sally Cox. The ladies of East Down Rural Community Network travelled from the Ards Peninsula to deepen the ties of friendship and to participate in the day. 

The day could be summed up by the Speaker on Cu Chulainn, Daragh Smyth. “Today was a memorial day, the sun was out and a triad of King William, St Bridget and Cu Chulainn filled the room.  The members participated and people mentioned that many attitudes, prejudices and established beliefs were challenged.”

Rev John Watson speaking on King William was delighted “To let people know the other side, a balanced account of the histories.  I really enjoyed being present and hearing what the other speakers on Cu Chulainn and St. Bridget”.
