Former Clongowes teacher and local historian Brendan Cullen will give the talk on both the Pale and the early history of the castle as well as snippets of its later history and links to James Joyce.

The walk and talk starts at 3pm from the car park on the right hand side at the end of the Clongowes driveway.
