The AGM of the Glens of Antrim Historical Society takes place this Friday 18 September in St Mary’s Parish Centre, Cushendall, at 8pm.
The Society’s journal, The Glynns, will be launched on the night, and there will also be a presentation to prize-winning essay student, Conleth Burns, of the Malachy McSparran Memorial Trophy.
The competition is open to all A-Level History students from the Glens area who write about any aspect of history relating to the Glens.
On Friday 23 October, the Society will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary with the holding of a Gala Dinner in the Glens Hotel, Cushendall.
The guest speaker will be the Rev John Dunlop and the occasion will also see the launch of Green Glens and Golden Memories, the Society’s latest contribution to documenting of the History of the Glens.
The launch will be performed by the Hon. Hector McDonnell.
All-in-all it is a very special year for the Society and we hope as many members and friends of the Society as possible can come along to the Dinner and join with us in celebrating what should be a very memorable occasion.
