THE MAIN TALK – Women of the Irish Revolution

By Sinead McCoole

Spies, snipers, couriers, gun runners, medics – women played  a major role in the fight for Ireland’s freedom. Sinead will talk of the characters, personalities and courage of Ireland’s revolutionary women. This revolutionary period was a time when vast numbers of Irish women were politicised and imprisoned for their beliefs, with a special emphasis on one prison, Kilmainham Gaol.

SHORT TALK –Famous Visits (Popes, Presidents and Royalty)

By Padraig Laffan

 Many famous people have come to our country both before and after Independence. In our lifetime we have seen two Pope’s visit, a few American Presidents, Queens and Princes as well as many influential people who have been part of famous visitors to our shores. In the past we had famous Royal visitors (King Henry II, King James II and William III) but not all were made as welcome as the present visitors
