Dunhill History Lectures Series X, 2016

"Easter 1916: Two McDermotts, Sean and Frank - and two visions of Ireland".

Julian Walton's series of Dunhill Winter lectures concludes on Thursday, March 24.
Julian will speak on the above title.

Venue: Dunhill Multi-Education Centre
Date: Thursday, March 24
Time: 8 pm

Sean Mac Diarmada (1883-1916) played a key role in the revival of Irish republicanism and was one of the main organisers of the Rising, for which he paid with his life.
His contemporary Frank MacDermott (1886-1975) sought to achieve self-government for a 32-county Ireland by constitutional means. Eventually accepting the Free State, he contributed significantly to Irish politics in the 1930's.
Both men devoted themselves to the cause of Ireland - but had very different ideas of the kind of Ireland they wished to create.

Lectures are held at Dunhill Multi-Education Centre (opposite the GAA grounds).
Starting at 8 pm, each lecture lasts about an hour and is followed by a question & answer session and light refreshments.

Admission charge of €5 per lecture.
All are very welcome.
