Talk on Shackleton in Kilcullen tonight

A reminder that an illustrated talk by Mario Corrigan on ‘Ernest Shackleton - Kildare Born Hero’ will take place in the Community Library this evening, Wednesday 24 August, from 7.30pm, writes Brian Byrne.

The event marks the 100th anniversary of the rescue of the crew of the Endurance, crushed by ice on an ill-fated expedition to the South Pole.

The talk is free, and well worth coming along to. It is part of the National Heritage Week programme.
