Lecture on Ancient irish Laws and Customs By Caroline Woodiel Dr. Patrick Browne of Ireland and Arizona will be giving a special lecture at the McClelland Irish Library on March 11th. The 7pm lecture will focus on the influence of Brehon Law in ancient Ireland and how the law defined the ways and customs of everyday life. “The Early Irish Laws originated in the preliterate Irish world and were passed down through word of mouth by lawyers from generation to generation,” explains Dr. Browne. His discussion will center on the oral tradition first written down after the introduction of Christianity and how the evolution of legal understanding evolved with the Irish language itself. As a graduate of University College Dublin and the National University of Ireland Galway, Dr. Browne brings an understanding of the traditions and legal history from the eyes of the modern day Irish. The event is open to the public with a suggested $5 donation in lieu of any admission fees. A social hour will follow the presentation.
