Description

Join John Colgan, in Society for Old Lucan's guest lecture for Heritage Week 2019, an eminent local historan and author, for an illustrated talk on the history of the 18th-century Dublin to Mullingar toll road, which had turnpikes in Lucan village and on Leixlip bridge.

John has studied the turnpikes in detail and lives in the (still standing) Toll House on the bridge in Leixlip built 1732-34. This talk will be of great interest to local history enthusiasts from Lucan and Leixlip, and anyone who has an interest in the 18th century era, or transport history.

Many thanks to SDCC Local History and SDCC Lucan Library for providing the venue for this talk.
