Clare County Library, as part of the Brian Ború millennium commemoration, is delighted to welcome award-winning author Morgan Llywelyn to Killaloe Public Library. Morgan will give two talks at the library in Killaloe. The first, an event for adults, will take place on Tuesday 6th May at 8pm when she will give a talk on Brian Ború, 1014 and the Battle of Clontarf. This is a free event and all are welcome. On Wednesday 7th May at 11am she will give a talk to 5th and 6th class pupils from pre-booked local schools who have already read a selection of her books on the same topic. The library is particularly proud to host Morgan as they have invited the whole county to read her novels 'Lion of Ireland', historical fiction for adults, and 'Brian Boru: Emperor of the Irish', an historical novel for children, as part of the One County One Book initiative launched recently.
