The Story of Garron Tower

St Killian's College
The Story of Garron Tower – Tuesday 9th February at 7pm in Glenlough Community Centre, Carnlough.

Join us to hear about the history of this famous building, from its building in 1848-50 by Frances Anne Vane-Tempest-Stewart, Marchioness of Londonderry, through to its later incarnations as a hotel and a school. The talk draws on the large collection of documents in the Public Records Office, including a series of plans which evolved towards the final design, detailed correspondence from the architect and builder, and legal documents regarding the purchase and transfer of land, as well as a range of historical photographs and postcards.
This talk is FREE and refreshments will be provided.
