Rev. Roy Magee, a Presbyterian minister.
« on: March 21, 2007, 11:19:46 PM »
On the 22nd and 23rd November 1997, Rev. Roy Magee joined a small group of people from Belfast who went Newmarket-on-Fergus, Co. Clare as part of an exchange visit. The purpose of the visit was to examine the parallels between two nineteenth century co-operative schemes. These were the co-operative society in Belfast, founded in 1829, and the co-operative experiment set up by Vandeleur in West Clare in the early 1830's.
