Special Salon and Saloon Event:Featuring Dr. Kieran O'Conor - May 7
The Presidio Museum is pleased to welcome Dr. Kieran O'Conor, collateral descendant of Hugo O'Conor, for a special lecture presentation on the archaeology and history of the O'Conors of Connacht. Dr. O'Conor will talk about the origins and subsequent history of the O'Conors, and the archaeology associated with the clan along with the importance of cultural heritage tourism. He blends his own personal heritage with his archaeological expertise to share a little bit about Tucson, the Irish and how they are still connected. He will also comment on the well-known portrait of Hugo. Is it really him?
O'Conor has a PhD in archaeology from University College Cardiff, Wales. He excavated Carlow Castle, an Irish National Monument, in 1996 and was diretor of the Discovery Programme's Medieval Rural Settlement Project during the 1990's. He has been on the staff at the National University of Ireland-Galway since 2000. He has published widely on the subjects of castes, medieval rural settlement and meieval landscapes.
