Belfast Liteary Society



The Belfast Literary Society was founded in 1801 with the object of securing ‘an evening in every month for literary conversation’ based on a paper presented by a member of the Society, with the hope that such discussion would be ‘suited to every class of intelligent men’.   The Society continues to this day. Membership is by invitation.            

The following papers have been presented to the Society by Dennis Kennedy.
