Lusk Heritage Group are planning a Storytelling night in Murrays, the Square, Lusk for Friday 8 th
September. The format will be similar to their previous very successful evening, with a range of well known people, stories, memories and local history. We will give more details of speakers and topics in the September issue of Lusk Local. A big turnout is expected if their last storytelling night is anything to go by, so mark Friday 8th September into your diary and watch out for further details. You can also keep up with Lusk Heritage news by checking out their Lusk Heritage Group Facebook page. They recently reported on the funeral ceremony of Sir Reginald Barnewall and his wife Maureen whose last wish was to be transported all the way from Australia to be buried in Curraha, a little graveyard in County Meath. The Tombstone of his ancestor, Christopher Barnewall, is in the tower of Lusk Church since 1575. At the memorial ceremony in Curraha Aidan Arnold, chairman of the Lusk Heritage Group, presented Joseph Barnewall, the present head of the Barnewall family worldwide, with a copy of his forthcoming book Barnewall de Berneval, 800 Years a Norman-Irish Family. No date is fixed yet for publication but it is the final stages of checking before going to print.
