An excellent slate of speakers will be there. My talk is on the Redshank Migration from Mid Argyll to East Donegal. This is the story of the Redshanks, or Highland Gaels, that settled in Portlough Precinct, in the Lagan District, east Donegal, in the 1500s. It is a romantic, though tragic tale, of the Scottish princess, Fionnuala Nic Dhónaill, the daughter of Seamus Mac Dónaill, the taoiseach, or chief, of Clann Dhónaill and how she became a pivotal figure in the migration of Highland Gaels into west Ulster.
Fionnuala Nic Dhónaill is better known in history as Iníon Dubh (said Nee-an Doo), which means 'black haired daughter.'
If you have an interest in Scottish history and lore, do attend. Going to be an enjoyable and interesting event.
