Tea & Talk, Last of the Donkey Pilgrims
Kevin O’Hara will delight his audience by sharing his lovely PowerPoint images and humorous anecdotes of his timeless and extraordinary journey around the Emerald Isle. He will make his presentation at Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum on Saturday, April 22 at 3:30 pm followed by a Victorian tea.
O’Hara, 2012 John F. Kennedy National Award winner as an outstanding Irish American, is the author of the critically-acclaimed Last of the Donkey Pilgrims, which chronicles his nine-month, 1,720-mile journey around Ireland with a donkey in 1979.
Library Journal called his beloved travel saga, “One of the finest books about contemporary Ireland ever written.” Irish novelist Morgan Llywelyn wrote, “This deeply personal odyssey of two pilgrims–one a courageous man and the other a courageous donkey–touched me as few books have.” The Christian Science Monitor recently ranked “Donkey,” as one of Ireland’s Top Ten Books. His book will be available for purchase.
