Ros joins octogenarian and Lismore-born John O’Keeffe, author of Down the Deerpark Road Outside Lismore for an evening of Lismore travel. Rosamund’s father was agent to the Duke of Devonshire and for 12 years their home was the east wing of Lismore Castle. She talks about her book, Castles, Follies and Four-Leaf Clovers, on walking St Declan’s Way and the dichotomy of travelling through a place where she also belongs.
