QUEEN ELIZABETH’S KILDARE ANCESTORS

 TALK ON QUEEN ELIZABETH’S KILDARE ANCESTORS

St Mochua Historical Society, Timahoe, have organised a talk at the burial ground of Queen Elizabeth’s Irish ancestors for Wednesday evening 6 July.
The talk is entitled ‘Kildare has always been popular with Royals’ and will be held in the Colley mortuary chapel in the cemetery adjacent to Carbury Castle.

Six generations of the Queen’s county Kildare ancestors lived in Carbury Castle and many of them are interred in the mortuary chapel. The talk by historian Seamus Cullen will give details of the visits to county Kildare by English monarchs over the centuries and will also detail the Queen’s family tree leading back to her first Kildare ancestor Sir Henry Colley who died in the late 16th century.

Meet at Kelly’s of Timahoe at 6.00 p.m.

Anyone who wishes to join at  Carbury may do so, meet at the Church car park at 6-30 pm.

The evening concludes with a visit to the ‘O’Flaherty Museum’, Timahoe.

There is no charge and
all are welcome.
