Conference, Guided tour

In Tenneville, on September 10, 1692, the Irish elite officer "Matthias Barnewall Xe Lord Trimleston" was killed in action. At just 22 years of age, Lord Trimleston was a member of the prestigious "King Jame's ii Troops of Irish Horse Guards". Surprised by an enemy attack in which his regiment distinguished itself, he was killed during the first cavalry charge at the Battle of Ortheuville. He is buried in the Old Church of Tenneville.

On the occasion of the Heritage Days, the Cercle historique de Tenneville and its partners decided to highlight its forgotten history. The visit to the Old Church will be followed by the on-site conference "Meeting Lord Trimleston" and the grand inauguration of a commemorative plaque in his honour. All this in an Irish atmosphere. This activity will also provide an opportunity to present the 3rd volume of the Historic Circle entitled "Lord tirmlesteon: an Irish officer killed in the Battle of Ortheuville in 1692".Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
