Event Description

On Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 6:00 PM the Brehon Law Society of Nassau County is having a dinner meeting at the Wantagh Inn located at 3264 Railroad Avenue in Wantagh New York 11793 (beneath the Wantagh station on Babylon line of the Long Island Rail Road).

We are honored to have as a guest lecturer Professor Elizabeth Fitzpatrick, a Fulbright Scholar from Harvard, who will discuss the Learned Families of Brehon Lawyers in Ireland c.1200 to 1600 AD. She will also describe an effort to reunite sundered parts of a sixteenth century brehon book currently housed in separate museums and libraries. Please bring $50 to cover the cost of dinner, which is a buffet with beer (including Guinness and Harp), wine and soda. ($35 for law students and any sisters or brothers between jobs). The Wantagh Inn, incidentally, is a fine Irish restaurant with a great bar.

We also must discuss several other important dates, including an historic event at the Cooper Union on May 23, 2013 with Senator George Mitchell commemorating the 15th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement. We are also holding a fundraiser on June 20, 2013 with Molloy College to rebuild the Point Breezy Firehouse which was wrecked by Hurricane Sandy. The Famine Tribunal will be held at Fordham Law on April 20 and 21. The Suffolk Brehons have their dinner on April 18 at the Irish Coffee Pub.

Please call me to RSVP for our meeting on April 17 so I can give an estimate. 516 398-2471. If you have questions about any of these events or for more information about the Brehon Law Society of Nassau County, please call me. As always, all are welcome at our meetings, not just lawyers and judges.
