The Clare Champion,
Friday, April 12th, 2013





A public talk will be held on the Rineen ambush at the Clare Museum in Ennis on Saturday.

Mr Donald Masterson, Emeritus Professor of Literature and Cinema Studies at the State University of New York, Oswego, will give a public talk at Clare Museum on the Rineen ambush and subsequent Black and Tan reprisals in the area.

Professor Masterson is the co-author of a book on the Black and Tans in Irish memory and the presentation will relate to information gathered so far for the book, in both the United States and in Ireland.

The lecture will be followed by a Question and Answers session.

Professor Masterson’s Irish parents were from County Westmeath and had first hand experience of the Black and Tans there. While presenting his research in this lecture, he is also interested in gathering any memories on Rineen and other ambushes in County Clare.

The lecture will be held on Saturday 13th April at 2.30pm and admission is free. All are welcome.
