History Talk: John Doherty

On February 22, 2012 by admin

Dr Adrian Grant will give a history talk on the radical Labour leader, publisher and factory reformer, John Doherty, on 23 Feb 2012 in the Coffee Cup, Buncrana. Doherty was born in Buncrana in 1798 and worked in the mills around the area. In his adult life he became one of the leaders of the English working class but never forgot his Buncrana roots. If you’ve ever walked past the memorial to John Doherty by the Castle Bridge and wondered why he was commemorated, this is the talk to go to.

Admission is free. Donations to the West Inishowen History & Heritage Group are most welcome
