Book launch in Charlie Byrne’s

A new book, charting the life and times of the 19th century Irish aristocrat and businesswoman Eva O’Flaherty, will be launched in Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop tomorrow at 6pm.

Achill’s Eva O’Flaherty: Forgotten Island Heroine by Mary J Murphy, will be launched by The Irish Times’ Hugh Oram.

Eva O’Flaherty was born in Caherlistrane in 1874 and lived in Paris and London before moving to Achill Island, off the County Mayo coast in the early 1900s where she ran St Coleman’s Knitting Industry and co-founded Scoil Acla.

All are welcome to the launch.
