Kennedy Kane McArthur and His Olympic Marathon Victory
29 November 2012 - 29 November 2012
Thursday 29 November, 8pm
Local hero, Kennedy Kane McArthur’s magnificent victory in the marathon race at the Stockholm Olympics in 1912 has been well documented this summer. As the centenary year draws to a close, Mr Blair will reflect on the Dervock man’s outstanding achievement and on his life story, and with the advantage of having met and talked with McArthur’s sister and niece many years ago, he will try and get as close as possible to the real McArthur.
All talks take place in Ballymoney Town Hall at 8pm. Admission £2 includes refreshments.
