Final recording of HistoryIreland Hedge School year

If you couldn't make it to the National Library of Ireland last Wednesday evening for the last of this year's HistoryIreland Hedge Schools, you can listen to a recording of the lively discussion here.

The subject was Ulster Covenant 1912: an exercise in democracy or reaction? Joining HistoryIreland editor Tommy Graham were Peter Collins (St Mary's Belfast), Tom Hartley (Sinn Féin), Brian Kennaway (Irish Association) and Philip Orr (New perspectives: politics, religion and conflict in mid-Antrim).

I'm reliably informed there will be another full Hedge School year in 2013.
