The Roscommon Genealogy Gathering: booking open

The Roscommon Genealogy Gathering is a three-day interactive seminar in which delegates will learn about the county's social history and get a flavour of how to conduct genealogy in the area. It's suitable for beginners and for those who would like to learn more. An organised outing to Strokestown Park House and Famine Museum is part of the programme.

The Gathering will be held at Roscommon County Library, Abbey Street, Roscommon Town on Wednesday 18 September to Friday 20 September.

The panel of speakers include Mike Feerick, from Ireland Reaching Out Project; local historian and genealogist Mike Lennon, Ger Delaney and Mary Skelly from the South Mayo and Roscommon Family History Research Centres, local historian Jim Ganly, Irish scholar Sean Ó’Dúill, and Lorraine Keane-Conlon from Roscommon Library Services.

The cost for attending on all three days is €75. Attendance on a daily basis is €30. These rates include tea/coffee for morning and afternoon breaks as well as entrance/transport costs for the outing.
