Ireland 1922: Women in independence, partition and civil war
Tuesday, 1st February 1, 6-7PM
Online/ Free, no booking required
Join The Royal Irish Academy on Brigid’s Day to commemorate the Women of 1922, in partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs.
From the handover of Dublin Castle, to the dawning of a new border across the island, to the fateful divisions of the civil war, a new book Ireland 1922 provides a snapshot of a year of turmoil, tragedy and, amidst it all, state-building as the Irish revolution drew to a close.
Join Fionnuala Walsh, Lindsey Earner-Byrne and Mary McAuliffe chaired by Darragh Gannon to explore a turning point in Irish history; one whose legacy remains controversial a century on. They will discuss events during that year, how they impacted on the year and the creation of the new state, and consider what role gender has to play in this Decade of Centenaries.
This event will take place online. It is free of charge and you can watch it here from 1 February at 6 p.m.
