MUTINIES IN THE EARLY 20th CENTURY – By Éanna De Búrca (on the 20th)

Éanna De Búrca has given us talks in the past on his family’s part in St. Enda’s School in Rathfarnham, Frongoch prison of war camp in Wales after the 1916 Rising, and his father’s part in Bloody Sunday in 1920. Éanna’s April talk will be on the early mutinies at the turn of the 20th century in Ireland. Mutinies are defined in the Oxford English Dictionary as being “revolts against authority”.  Over the centuries there have been many revolts here but they were never alluded to as “mutinies”.  However, in the first quarter of the last century there were three “mutinies” but were not very well publicised as such and barely got mentioned in our history – one in particular.  This Éanna would like to highlight but will be making reference to the other two and perhaps, at a later date, Éanna may be able to give a more detailed account of the third mutiny.

mEMbers will receive an e-mail with the invite password.         

Non-Members please send an email to: info@foxrocklocalhistory.ie for a password to this meeting.
