The Life of A.E. Russell
A powerpoint presentation outlining details of his early life in Lurgan by John Donohoe.

The presentation will include:
- his work as a writer and Editor of the Irish Statesman and the Irish Homestead
- his life as an artist and painter and his life as a patron to and promoter of writers, artists, and the theatre
- his involvement in the politics of the early 1900's including the Great Dublin Lockout and Jim Larkin, the 1916 Rising and World War 1
- how his whole life was shaped by his faith which was deeply influenced by Gnosticism and Hinduism
- his mysticism is quite fascinating and I will give a few examples of his meditations. This latter aspect of the talk will be the main emphasis as it gives a key to understanding this remarkable son of Lurgan
