Jim Heffernan will give a talk entitled ‘Richard Griffith of Millicent’ at 8.00pm on
Wednesday 9th January 2019 in the GAA Centre, Prosperous Road.

After making a fortune in India Griffith bought Millicent House in 1782. He was a prominent figure in the area for thirty years. He was forced to sell the estate in 1809 because of
financial problems mainly caused by his involvement with the Grand Canal Company. He died in Wales in reduced circumstances in 820.

Admission is free, all are welcome
