Hope is beginning to return to young Lamport as his friend and mentor John has returned to assist him in his escape from prison after being held for pillory against the King of England.
Last we saw of young William, all hope seemed lost, but a familiar face has arrived to lend a helping hand in his escape.
The start of a new week brings with it, the start of a new chapter. Last we seen of young Lamport he was arrested for treason and held for execution, but events transpire to further twist the path that fate has in store for him.
This week, we conclude Chapter 2. But don’t worry, check back next week when Chapter 3 begins.
Journalist Simon Bourke of The Wexford People recently wrote an in-depth article about William Lamport. It’s particularly significant to see such coverage in the publication as Wexford is Lamport’s home county. The article also features great coverage on ‘The Legend of William Lamport’ and features the art and design of Cormac Hughes, Ellie Wright and Robin Jones.
E-copies of The Wexford People can be found here.
