with Kerrie Clarke

Join Kerrie Clarke as she reveals what has been an undocumented part of Lady Louisa’s life – her time in Blackrock. From 1768 Louisa acquired a cottage to undertake sea bathing – a growing fashion with the gentry at the time. The talk will also include her excursions, pastimes, dealings with her neighbours, aiding with the redevelopment of Frascati, the gossip and news from her siblings, and her day to day life in this small seaside village in 18th-century Dublin.
