1918: The Year Everything Changed with Donal Fallon

29 September @ 11:15 am

HISTORY AT THE CASTLE: Ireland 100 years ago. A series of talks at Swords Castle.

1918 is a decisive turning point in the Irish revolutionary period; witnessing mass movements emerge against conscription and state repression of nationalist organisations. The year witnessed the Representation of the People Act, which finally put the vote into the hands of (some) women, and the outlawing of nationalist organisations including Sinn Féin. This talk will examine events from this momentous year including Gaelic Sunday, the General Strike against conscription and the outbreak of the Spanish Flu to look at the changing political climate in Ireland.
