Lunchtime Talk: From Tralee to Rhodesia, Dr Georgina Revington 1889-1961

August 22 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

| Free
In 1912, Georgina Revington became the first Tralee woman to graduate with a Bachelor in Medicine from Trinity College, Dublin. She went on to become the medical officer for Lurgan Workhouse, Armagh in 1913. By 1921, she was working in Rhodesia at the Kalene Missionary Hospital. Dr. Revington is one of a number of Kerry women who have made a substantial contribution in their communities that we have begun to discover through genealogy and local history research. Speaker Martine Brennan has been engaged in genealogy and local history research for over a decade. She is a contributor to Ireland Reaching Out, the Beyond Kin Project, and the Slave Name Roll Project. She is a member of the Guild of One Name Studies and the International Society of Genetic Genealogists (Ireland). This lunchtime talk is a free event as part of National Heritage Week. All welcome.
