Invitation to book launch, and remembering Brian — Irish waterways history

Brian Goggin was the webmaster of Irish Waterways History, a historian who provided readers with some interesting facts about the waterways and the bridges that crossed them. A couple of his pieces appeared here in the Chronicles as guest columns. He died in 2020. A celebration of life combined with the launch of his book, which was to be published post humously, is to take place June 2nd at Flanagan’s On The Lake in Tipperary. Click on the link above for more details of the event and how you can purchase Goggin’s prized work of art.

Our sincere condolences to his family and friends, plus colleagues and those he met along the way. May he be remembered for his works that were interesting to read over a cup of tea. ❤
