Printer-friendly version

Monday 24 September at 6.30pm in Inchicore Library.

Join Cathy Scuffl, Historian in Residence (Dublin City Council, South Central Area) as she sets the tone on the country on the lead into 1919.  1918 was a pivotal year in Irish history the consequences of which are still with us today. Nationally, workers and women mobilised against the threat of conscription, with key events like a national strike and Lá na m-Ban making newspaper headlines. Internationally, November brought the end of the First World War, followed by a general election in which some women and a considerable number of younger men had the vote for the frst time. All these events set the tone for 1919 another key year in the Decade of Commemorations. The talk/event is free. Booking is required.
