Old Dublin Society Lecture: the Kearney hangings at Bohernabreena, 1815

with John Fitzgerald

The Kearneys – a father and two sons – were hanged together in Bohernabreena c. 1815 in a public spectacle that drew thousands. But there may have been a miscarriage of justice and this talk will reveal some of the facts behind the folklore surrounding their conviction and execution.

Dublin City Library and Archive, 138-144 Pearse Street on 11th October at 6pm
