CATHAL BRUGHA: Peter the Painter, Candlestick Maker with Fergus O’Farrell

29 September @ 3:00 pm

Cathal Brugha

Cathal Brugha held leadership positions in the Irish independence movement from before the Rising until his death at the beginning of the Civil War. Despite this, he remains a neglected and misunderstood figure of the Irish Revolution. Join Fergus O’Farrell, the author of the first English language biography of Brugha, as he discusses Brugha’s role in the Revolution, his complex views on violence and his relationship with other rebel leaders such as Michael Collins and Richard Mulcahy.
