      Ulster Scots Autumn Lecture: Remembering Rollo by Laura Spence

      Remembering Rollo: The Story of the Statue in the Square
      This talk is based on a book I co-authored in 2014, telling the colourful life story of Major General Sir Robert Rollo Gillespie. This dashing character stands atop a 55 Grecian column in Comber Square the largest Masonic monument of its kind anywhere but few people know his story. Born in County Down, he served across the world and his exploits on and off the battlefield make this illustrated talk both fascinating and humorous!
