The Friends of Derrymore host Dr. Éamon Pheonix to talk about Ireland form 1775 – 1801: The Volunteers, the 1798 Rebellion & The Act of Union. This is a unique opportunity to have a look inside the National Trurst property at Derrymore.
Derrymore House built in last quarter of the eighteenth century for Isaac Corry. He was the Member of Parliament for Newry from 1776 to 1806 and was Chancellor of the Irish Parliament at the time of the passing of the Act of Union in 1801. It was later acquired by John Grubb Richardson, whose grandson John S. Wakefield Richardson gave it to the National Trust. The surrounding park and woodlands are open to the public.
