Ballinamore is widely known for its close connections with the late John McGahern and the McManus family - his mother was Susan McManus. On Saturday 4th May 2019, Ballinamore Tourism Committee are organising 'A Celebration of the Life of John McGahern Event' to celebrate National Community Weekend.
This event will commence with the Official Opening of the John McGahern Room in Ballinamore Tourism Office at 3.30 pm. A plaque will be unveiled to John McGahern on his uncle Pat McManus's Garage, which will be followed by a locally organised bus tour to various sites to learn about the history of McGahern's young life. The tour will end up in Glenview House for refreshments and Dr Michael O’Rourke, Lecturer, Trinity College, will deliver a short lecture. This will be followed by a guided tour of Glenview Museum, where there is a section dedicated to the late John McGahern.
This is a free event and all are welcome.
