Event Schedule

Welcome address by host & author, Rose Servitova

  • Ireland's Countesses: Fashion and Influence at the Tudor Court. Historical costumer, Melissa Shiels, will demonstrate how Irish Countesses were political players in the Tudor court, using clothing and gifts of apparel to protect and promote Irish dynasties. 
  • Serving of Afternoon Tea delights.
  • Literary Heroines of Yore - Our Fascination with women from the past. Join historical fiction authors Niamh Boyce and Nuala O'Connor as Rose Servitova leads a discussion on how the past has influenced their choice of female protagonist - how they reimagined the stories of both the infamous and those who were largely forgotten.
  • Award winning soprano, Eve Stafford, will musically enhance and enliven the drawing room by paying homage to Limerick's world famous opera star of the Victorian era, Catherine Hayes. Eve will be accompanied by accomplished pianist Irina Dernova.

This will be a fantastic afternoon of heritage and culture along with a serving of delicious afternoon tea, right here in the centre of Limerick’s Georgian Quarter.
