"Irish Revolutionaries: The Fenian Brotherhood in Troy, Cohoes, and Waterford," Waterford Museum’s Winter Series at McGreivey’s

The Waterford Historical Museum and Cultural Center proudly announces our next Winter Series program, “Irish Revolutionaries: The Fenian Brotherhood in Troy, Cohoes, and Waterford,” with local historian Aaron Robinson. In the mid-19th century, Irish revolutionaries were not confined solely to Ireland, but could be found in the United States, including on the streets of Troy, Waterford, and Cohoes. Celebrate the Irish season by learning about the Fenian Brotherhood in this area, and how their activism caused them to clash with the church, politicians, and even themselves.

Join us for splendid food, fascinating facts, great conversation and engaging company at 7pm, March 11th at McGreivey’s, one of this areas finest restaurants. Food & Drink available for PURCHASE all evening. Suggested donation is $6 per person ($5 members).
