Julian Walton Winter Lecture Series

Julian 2 copyThe Julian Walton Winter Lecture Series takes place every January for a 10 week period.  Every Thursday night, Julian and a selection of guest speakers outline the history and events of the community, county and region.  Lectures cost €5 and include question time and refreshments after the lecture.  Julian has completed nine lecture series to date, covering all topics from the history of the Powers of Dunhill Castle, to Thomas Francis Meagher to the Blueshirt movement locally.  Julian is always interested in hearing from patrons who wish to hear about a particular topic and he starts planning the next lecture series almost immediately after the last one finishes!

Reisk Graveyard

 

Reisk Graveyard

Reisk graveyard was the burial place of the local community for many centuries.  There are the ruins of a medieval church with a carved head over the chancel arch.  The headstones around it date mainly from the 18th and 19thcenturies, with a few from the 20th.  Some have decorative carving showing the symbols of Our Lord’s Passion; these are often found in graveyards of the Waterford area, but those of Reisk are the finest examples of the work of our 18th-century local stonecutters.  There is also a headstone with a unique carving of the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden.  The tomb of the O’Sullivans of Ballylegat, a Catholic gentry family that had escaped the Cromwellian confiscations, dates from the 1730s and bears their coat of arms.
