poster promoting a history talk about the Battle of Newtownbutler


The 'War of the Three Kings' in Ireland in 1689-91 remains a pivotal point in Irish history. The battles of Aughrim and the Boyne and the sieges of Limerick, resonate with communities north and south to this day, their impacts still discussed and even mythologised.
But, Fermanagh in 1689 played a crucial role in the conflict, and with more recent research, the importance of Fermanagh in the early days of the war is being brought into greater focus.
Historian Darren Graham will deliver a presentation related to research and his own interest (some might say obsession!) with the Fermanagh campaign of 1689.
Darren has seen work published on the period since the early 2000s – with particular focus on Fermanagh
In this past year some new, and yet highly pertinent features of the events, actions and conduct and general narrative of the campaign have emerged.
Darren will also seek to look at these and re-evaluate the importance of the 1689 timeline, and Fermanagh itself with a view to re-defining the accepted version of events.

Hosted by Lisnaskea Historical Society this will be a popular talk sure to attract a lot of interest.
