On Friday 2 November 2018 a History Ireland ‘Hedge School’ debate on ‘100 years of women in politics and political life’ took place in Dublin Castle, Dublin 2. A hundred years ago women in Ireland (then part of the UK) got the vote. To mark a century of women’s subsequent involvement in politics and public life Dublin Castle is hosting a special exhibition in the Coach House. In conjunction, History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, hosted a debate with Sineád McCoole (curator), Deirdre Mac Mathúna (History Teachers’ Association of Ireland), Mary O’Rourke (former Minister for Education), and Joe Lee (New York University).
The Hedge School took place at 2.30pm in the Bedford Hall, Dublin Castle; stream or download a full recording here. This Hedge School is supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
