Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN)
"Meet Your Irish Neighbours: Irish-Quebecers who made a Difference," with Fergus Keyes
Tuesday, March 16, 2021
7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. Eastern Time
In past QAHN Heritage Talks, Fergus Keyes has spoken about the general history of the Irish in Quebec, as well as, the Quebec events around the Irish Famine of 1847. In this presentation, he will highlight various individuals that have made a difference to Montreal and Quebec society. All of these people were either born in Ireland or had strong Irish heritage. Some are well-known, while others have been lost to history. You will likely be surprised at how many Irish can be found in all areas of Quebec history including politics, medicine and in the arts.
Fergus Keyes was born and raised in Montreal and loves his 100% Irish heritage. Retiring after a successful career in senior management positions in the Canadian private security industry, he earned a degree as a Chartered Director with a specialty in board and governance issues. Fergus has served on a number of non-profit boards and is currently the secretary of the board for Alzheimer’s Montreal and a board member for the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network. He is also enthusiastically involved in the efforts of the Montreal Irish Monument Park Foundation to build a memorial space around the Black Rock.
