Conversations at Ennismore Retreat Centre



For three years or more, we in Ennismore have been conducting CONVERSATIONS each Monday evening from 7.30pm – 9.30pm.

CONVERSATIONS are just that…a CONVERSATION around a topic. A speaker presents a topic, which is followed by a CONVERSATION, follows over tea or coffee for one hour plus.


The following are dates for the ‘coming Monday CONVERSATIONS:

  • Nov. 24th: SEEING A NEW WAY – Dr. Malgorzata D’Aughton, from the Medieval History Dept. of UCC will join others in presenting the poems and diary of a 13th century Irish Franciscan whose pilgrimage on foot to the Holy Land introduces him to new cultures, religions and ways which challenge him. In poetry and song, Malgorzata and others, will present this wonderful experience to us. In a globalized world and a multi-cultural Ireland, this 13th century poem, brought alive by Malgorzata, is a parable for our own time. Not to be missed!
  • December 1st: and 8th: Two evenings with Tom Casey, OP. in reflection through slides and poems.
