Mr Dooley will talk on the construction of the Rideau Canal and the workers who built it.
Mr Dooley is a retired marine engineer from Ireland who was instrumental in having an historical plaque erected on June 20, 2013 in honour of those workers.

Also as part of the program we will have the musical group “Irons in the Fire” performing some Irish music for your enjoyment.

The presentations will be held at the Stittsville Legion from 1:30 to 4:00pm on Saturday, March 21st. As usual, admission and parking are free as are the refreshments that will follow the programme. The Legion is handicap accessible on the north side of the building. There is also extra parking available in the Day Care parking lot across Stittsville Main Street from the Legion.
