The Irish Revolution 1917-1923 lecture series, Dublin

Until mid-July, a three-part lecture series is being presented across the Dublin City Libraries' network to explore the aftermath of the 1916 Rising. The key questions to be discussed and answered in these lectures concern the changes to the political, economic and social landscape that ushered in independence in 1922.

The three lectures (Ireland in 1917 | What was the War of Independence? | What was the Civil War?) will be held at Central Library and Dublin City Library & Archive (the only locations where the series is presented at lunchtime – 1pm), and twelve branch library locations. The first talk was presented in seven of these libraries earlier this week.

Although free to attend, advance booking is required at some venues. You'll find further information about the speakers and other details on the Dublin City Libraries website.
