On Tuesday 6 March 2018 the National Gallery of Ireland hosted ‘John Redmond and the Irish Parliamentary Party: A centenary symposium’. This was a central event of the John Redmond commemorative programme planned for March 2018. One hundred years after his death on 6 March 1918, this symposium reassessed Redmond and the achievements of the Irish Parliamentary Party under his leadership. Speakers will include Paul Bew (QUB), Margaret O’Callaghan (QUB) and Conor Mulvagh (UCD), and the event concluded with a Royal Irish Academy discourse by Alvin Jackson (Edinburgh) at 6pm. The symposium was co-organised by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, the National University of Ireland, the Royal Irish Academy and the School of History, University College Dublin, and took place from 10am in the National Gallery of Ireland, Merrion Square, Dublin 2. Explore the full programme here.
