Dr Colm Lennon will give a talk in the Parish Centre on Wednesday, 6th November, at 7.30 pm, entitled, ‘The history of the church in the parish of Clontarf’. It is an appropriate topic against the backdrop of the work we are doing to conserve our parish church. Colm is retired from the Department of History in NUI Maynooth. Among his publications are, ‘That Field of Glory: The story of Clontarf, from battleground to garden suburb’ and ‘Clontarf, Irish Historic Towns Atlas: Dublin Suburbs’. He lives in Clontarf.               Fr Martin
