The inaugural Albert Reynolds Memorial Lecture will be delivered by former British Prime Minister, Sir John Major, on Monday, December 10 at 5.30pm in Backstage Theatre, Longford and details of how to apply for tickets for the prestigious event have been released.

A limited number of seats will be available to the public in the main auditorium.

Additional seating will be provided in the Backstage Canal Studio with live streaming and a limited number of seats will be available to the public to view the live streaming.

If you are interested in attending the Albert Reynolds Memorial Lecture, please email events@longfordcoco.ie by Tuesday, December 4 at the latest.

As it is anticipated that this event will be over-subscribed, Longford County Council will allocate tickets and seats. Those who can be accommodated at the event will be notified by email.

Sinead Hussey, multimedia journalist from RTE, will be MC for the event.

Longford County Council, in consultation with the Reynolds family, agreed that a fitting way of remembering Albert's legacy would be by way of an Annual Memorial Lecture on the broad themes of peace, reconciliation and citizenship.

It is appropriate that the lecture is taking place on December 10, in the week of the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Downing Street Declaration.
