Moment In Time: Lords and ladies turn out in style for 18th Century Durrow Ball in 2008

Twelve years ago the people of Durrow transported themselves back to the 18th century.

The event was one of a few held to celebrate the town’s tri-centenary.

The amazing event was held in Durrow Castle on February 29 2008.

A dazzling wine reception was held in the castle before dinner and dancing in the function room.

Also on the night, Michael Sheppard, a local auctioneer, donated an 18th century gravy jug, which was auctioned off on the night for €1,500.

All the proceeds went towards the Durrow Forum.

It was a a great night had by all and thanks to Alf Harvey who was there on the night we have some great pictures to share with you.
