On 21 November 2023, Professor Roger Stalley gave a lecture on the medieval high crosses of Ireland to the MCHRI research network.
This network brings together researchers and all those interested in the material and cultural heritages of religious in Ireland, and is organised by Dr Niamh NicGhabhann (History).
This seminar was held at Mary Immaculate College and formed part of the Limerick History Seminar series. The event was attended by an enthusiastic audience in person and online, who very much enjoyed Professor Stalley's encyclopedic knowledge of these iconic monuments in the Irish landscape.
