If you enjoyed the Webinar (https://youtu.be/h-Voa94zLDA), or even missed it, “Black Snake – The Real Story of Ned Kelly” is a great read and provides a thoroughly researched and balanced account of the lives of two Australians of Irish descent, Michael Kennedy and Ned Kelly and the path leading to their fatal convergence.
 
Author Leo Kennedy is the great-grandson of Sergeant Michael Kennedy, one of the three police officers killed at Stringybark Creek by the Kelly Gang. Leo was to be one of our keynote speakers at this year’s District Conference.
