An exhibition marking the 700th anniversary of Kenure Estate, has been officially opened at Rush Library last week. The opening was performed by local senator, Dr James Reilly (FG) and attracted a gathering of interested locals. The beautiful exhibition is the brainchild of Niall Gosson, a student at the local St Joseph’s Secondary School in Rush. He is also Vice Chair of Young Fine Gael Fingal and he spoke eloquently about the history of Kenure to the gathering. The event also coincided with the 7th anniversary of the location of the award winning Rush Library at its current site at the old St Maur’s Church.
Gosson told the County Leader, “I was asked to put on this exhibition to celebrate the Rush library’s 7th year being open to the public. It is also celebrating the 700 years of the Kenure estate and the Kenure collection is being showcased for which I have been collecting items for the past five years.” “This is the first time the Kenure collection will be on display to the public. Former County Mayor, Cllr Joe Corr started the motion in the council to get the old church turned into the fantastic library facility we have today, which is a fitting location for this fabulous exhibition,” he said.
