History Ireland comes to Galway

Wednesday, 19th April, 2017 1:00am

The long-running History Ireland Hedge School series travels to Galway on Friday 21 April.

One of the most crucial events in Ireland’s history will be under the spotlight when History Ireland Editor Tommy Graham moderates a panel discussion on ‘Women in the Irish Revolution’.

One of the features of last year’s 1916 centenary commemorations was the extent to which the role of women in the national movement was acknowledged. Their role intensified in the immediate aftermath of the Rising, particularly since hundreds of male activists were in jail.

Why then were women subsequently marginalised? Did they voluntarily step back into the shadows or were they elbowed aside?

To discuss these and related matters join History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, and the panel of Mary McAuliffe (UCD), Linda Connolly (UCC), Elaine Sisson (IADT, Dun Laoghaire), and Connor McNamara (NUI Galway).

History Ireland Hedge Schools are lively debates and provide a novel and interesting way to bring historical topics to life.

The event takes place in the Mechanics Institute, Middle Street, Galway and starts at 8pm. There is no admission fee and no booking is required.
