Farmleigh House OPW

Exploring Farmleigh's Archives


A video from Farmleigh House Library, looking at what it said in the papers on Friday 18th September 1868. Continuing with a theme from Farmleigh’s Heritage Week presentations, you’ll look back again in time to see what stories in the paper can be linked with Michael Angelo Hayes’s painting (Installation of the Prince of Wales as Knight of St Patrick). The artist himself gets a mention in the Express on that day. From theatre to military manoeuvres, teas and tipples, operas and more daring acts, the social stories of historical culture unfold through the ads in the paper.
