We are delighted to be teaming up once again with the Donaghpatrick-Kilcoona Heritage Society to present our latest virtual heritage lecture: ‘The Franciscans in The West’, an illustrated talk by Dr Yvonne McDermott.


All are welcome to join us Wednesday March 3rd as Dr McDermott discusses the history, archaeology and architecture of the Franciscan friaries in the west of Ireland in the late medieval period, considering the Franciscan First and Third Order. The friaries of Ross Errilly, Co. Galway and Killeenbrenan, Co. Mayo will be examined in detail.

Dr Yvonne McDermott lectures on the BA (Hons) in History & Geography in GMIT Mayo in Castlebar where she teaches Archaeology and History. She completed her PhD in NUI Galway, based on the Franciscan and Dominican friaries in the Connacht Burke Lordships in the late medieval period and has published a number of journal articles and book chapters on the mendicant friars.
