History Ireland Hedge School: ‘All changed, changed utterly….’? Ireland 1916 -18

History Ireland Hedge School: ‘All changed, changed utterly….’? Ireland 1916 -18

Tuesday 8 November at 7pm

Join us for this wide ranging discussion in our final History Ireland Hedge school of 2016.

Joining History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham who will chair the discussion are Mary McAuliffe (UCD Womens’ Studies), Brian Hanley (contributor, Atlas of the Irish Revolution), Fearghal McGarry (Queen’s University, Belfast) and Padraig Yeates?(A City in Civil War) who will be debating the significance of Easter 1916. 

The contrast between the apparent indifference (hostility even) of the public response to the Rising of Easter 1916 with the landslide victory of Sinn Féin in the general election of December 1918 seems to bear out the famous lines of W.B.Yeats. But was the change as dramatic as it seemed or the result of ‘a long gestation’? And if there was a change what were the developments that led to it? 
 All welcome. Booking not required.
