The Luck O' The Irish

"Mysterious, superstitious, religious, tenacious, ingenious, courageous and indomitable. Before pubs and St. Patrick, beyond leprechauns and shamrocks, take a journey into the history of the people and land of Ireland."


About the Speaker:


Working as a Social Studies/History Resource Specialist Consultant with the Toronto District School Board and curriculum advisor for Upper Canada College, Lianne has taught over 100,000 teachers and students (usually in authentic period clothing). Her love of history has involved her in various initiatives such as the Freedman Bureau Records for the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., and curriculum development and business start-ups in India. In 2003, she was selected by W.O.M.A.D. as one of Toronto’s Women of Influence and in 2009 was invited to be a contributing author of the Canadian best-seller business/self-help book, 'The Power of Women United'.
