Writing the Irish Revolution: counties in perspective

Event, 25 January 2020, Dublin, Ireland

In this public symposium, contributors to the Irish Revolution series, published by Four Courts Press, will consider the various experiences of the Irish Revolution at a county level, explain the challenges involved in researching and writing from this perspective, and reflect on how their work has enhanced our understanding of Ireland between 1912 and 1923.

 

All contributions will be fifteen minutes in duration. Each session will conclude with a short question and answer session.
