The next lecture to the Thomond Archaeological and Historical Society is ‘Museums as Community Resources’, and will be given by Mr Tony Candon, who is a Kilkenny man and Keeper of Irish Folklife in the National Museum of Ireland. He is also Manager of NMI’s Museum of Country Life-Ireland’s National Folk Museum in Turlough Park, Castlebar, Co. Mayo. Tony has spent his working life studying, thinking about and interpreting Ireland’s heritage across a number of disciplines.  Aspiring to be a historian of medieval Ireland, economic necessity (and interest) forced him into work as an archaeologist in Cos. Cork and Tipperary.  From there he moved to Co. Tyrone where he built and ran The Ulster History Park, an open-air archaeological theme park near Omagh.  Later, he became the Curator of the four museums of Derry’s Heritage and Museum Service.  Tony joined the National Museum of Ireland in March 2007 and there he still is…
The venue for this lecture is Room T.1.17 Tara Building, Mary Immaculate College, South Circular Road, Limerick at 8.00pm on Monday 25 March 2019.
