It's 100 years since the Spanish Flu raged through Ireland, claiming an estimated 23,000 lives and infecting some 800,000 people across the country over a 12-month period.

To mark the centenary of the pandemic, the National Museum of Country Life in Turlough, Castlebar will open a new temporary exhibition next week.

On Tuesday evening next at 7pm, Noel Campbell - Curator with the National Museum of Country Life - will give a talk at the Museum focusing on the devastating impact of the Spanish Flu in Mayo.

This is the first of a series of talks he will give across the country in relation to the Spanish Flu.
