#AsgardLecture - The History of Asgard, from Launch to Gun Running to Conservation is the title of a lecture by Pat Murphy which is to take place in the National Maritime Museum of Ireland, Dun Laoghaire.

The lecture is on Thursday November 20th (8pm). Tickets costing €10 will be made available at the door opening at 7.30pm.

Murphy will tell the life of this famous yacht in Irish history from her launch in 1905 to current conservation in Collin's Barracks Museum.

Asgard undertook a 23 day voyage that centred on the dangerous mission to collect guns and ammunition for the Irish Volunteers. The landing of the arms took place in Howth Harbour in July 1914 and this historical event is described in detail with unique photographs.

The lecture will also feature Conor O'Brien's Kelpie and the Kilcoole landing.

In this centenary year of the anniversary of the Howth gunning event, the lecture will also cover commemorative celebrations.

In addition to tickets payable at the door, bookings can be made in advance by email: [email protected] and by contacting the NMMI on (01) 2143 964

#HowthGunRunning – A lecture entiltled 'Local Aspects of the Howth Gun Running' will be presented by Diarmuid Ó Cathasaigh on Tuesday 22 April at 8pm.

The lecture will no doubt draw great interest and as the topic surrounds a period in our history a century ago when munitions were secretly landed from the Asgard for the Irish Volunteers in 1914.

All are welcome to the lecture held in the Howth Angling Centre, West Pier, Howth Harbour and which is organised by the Howth Peninsula Historical Society, non-members entrance fee of €5.
