Cllr. Noel French set to deliver talk on the history of Ireland’s Boyne Valley at Boyne City Library USA

Noel French, the well-loved author and historian from Trim, a lush green town nestled in the Boyne Valley of Ireland, will be presenting a library talk in the lower level Community room of the Boyne District Library on Wednesday, July 17 at 6:00 p.m.Mr. French’s presentation, The Story of the Boyne Valley (Ireland), covers 5,000 years of Irish history. The library is located at 201 East Main Street in Boyne City.According to local Boyne City author, Robert Morgridge, some of our Boyne City’s earliest settlers were led to this area by one of Harriet Miller’s dreams. Harriet Miller, a New York spiritualist and wife of an Irish Immigrant, dreamed of a cabin on a bear-shaped lake. The Millers’ hunt for that cabin led them west to Michigan and finally to Lake Charlevoix, on which John Miller named the river leading to the lake after his favorite river in Ireland – the Boyne River.Mr. French is visiting the area as a part of a ‘twinning’ delegation organised by Trim Tourism Network & Boyne City officials.Noel French, Cathorleach of Trim Municiple District & member of Trim Tourism Network, is part of the delegation engaging in the twinning ceremony with Boyne City Mayor Tom Neidhamer and other area representatives.
