The Knights Templar in Gaultier - An illustrated talk by Dr Niall Byrne

Dr Byrne's latest book has been received with great acclaim. It is entitled  'The Irish Crusade'   and tells the story of  the very controversial 13th century warrior monks, their manor at Crooke, and their contribution to the crusades. Dr Byrne will also outline the early days of the Waterford and City Infirmary and the role of the townland of Leperstown in that story. A very interesting and entertaining enening is in prospect.
