Book early for Dublin Festival of History, 26 Sep–8 Oct

The Dublin Festival of History will take place from 26 September and 8 October, with events being held in local libraries, Dublin Castle (Printworks), City Hall and Dublin City Gallery the Hugh Lane. A number of walking tours and film screenings are also part of the programme, which is organised by Dublin City Public Libraries on behalf of Dublin City Council.

Dublin’s involvement in the First World War will be one of the main themes of this year's programme, which is available in a printed booklet from all branch libraries in the City or can be downloaded here. The Festival's aim is to provide those with an interest in history and who enjoy reading history for pleasure, an opportunity to listen and discuss a variety of history topics with authors and historians of national and international renown.

This will be second outing for the Dublin Festival of History. It proved very popular last year and many of the events were quickly sold out, so I'd recommend you look through the programme without delay and book as soon as possible.
