On Wed 7 Nov, Guy Johnston welcomed Ambassador Dr. Freudenschuss together with this wife Sigrid, distinguished guests and members of the Society to a Lecture called 'Through Mountains and Valleys', given by Dr. Enzo Farinella. Enzo is a Journalist and Director of Casa Italia Cultural Centre, Dublin. Originally from Sicily he lives in Ireland for many years. In his lecture he took us along to a journey with Irish Monks through Europe and Austria in particular, illustrating their influence on society then and now. The journey visited places such as St. Gall (Switerland), Salzburg and Vienna in Austria and includes names such as St. Rupert, St. Virgil and St. Kilian to name just a few.

The introduction to this fascinating lecture was given by Frank Cogan, former Irish Ambassador to Austria.
