Event Details

The second of our D-Day 80 Talks at the Irish Linen Centre & Lisburn Museum …

As we approach the 80th anniversary of the invasion of Europe, this talk draws on testimony from Northern Ireland veterans who took part in the D-Day operations. After researching their statements, never before disclosed details are revealed of action, triumph, and tragedy experienced by the men who were there.

Mark Scott is a researcher and author of two publications, ‘The man who shot the Great War’ (2016) and ‘Among the kings – the unknown warrior, an untold story’ (2020). This talk is drawn from content used in his latest book, ‘We fought on D-Day’, which is due for release on 6 June 2024.

Our talks are free and in person, and take place in the museum’s historic Assembly Room. Booking is required. Doors open at 6.30pm for tea and coffee on arrival, and talks start promptly at 7pm. Please note there is no allocated seating for this event.
