On Saturday January 10th the newly-constituted Dublin Education Department of the 1916 Societies will host a pair of talks in Dublin’s National History Museum (Collins Barracks), commencing at 1pm.
Both will focus on republican history from a female perspective.
Micheál Ó’Doibhilín – author of ‘Forgotten Hero’ – will talk in depth about Anne Devlin, a confidant of Robert Emmett, who led the 1803 rebellion which ultimately failed.
Following that, Nuala Perry – an ex-republican prisoner and member of the Anne Devlin Society Belfast – will speak about the experiences of female republican prisoners in Armagh Women’s Gaol.
A Q & A-style discussion from the floor will follow.
Admission is free and anyone requiring further information can contact the Sean Heuston Society in Dublin on their Facebook or Twitter accounts or get in touch with us here on this site.
