In late 1765 the brig Earl of Sandwich, was on its return leg to England from the Canary Islands laden with goods and riches. The lecture will cover the fateful voyage; the crew and passengers; and the culprits after they landed at Wexford until their days ended on the gallows at St. Stephen’s Green before being publicly displayed at Ringsend and the Muglins.
