Launch of the exhibition dedicated to E. Strzelecki

In December 2019. the association organized the opening of an exhibition dedicated to Edmund Strzelecki. The exhibition was available in the Arklow library throughout the month.

Paul (PaweĊ‚) Edmund Strzelecki was a Polish humanitarian, who, as the main agent of the British Relief Association during the Great Famine, developed a visionary and exceptionally effective mode of assistance: feeding starving children directly through the schools. At its peak in 1848, around 200,000 children from all denominations were being fed and clad, many of whom would have otherwise perished from hunger and disease. More www.strzelecki.ie
