DUBLIN 1918 with Cathy Scuffil
24 September @ 6:30 pm
1918 was a pivotal year in Irish history the consequences of which are still with us today. Nationally, workers and women mobilised against the threat of conscription, with key events like a national strike and Lá na m-Ban making newspaper headlines. Internationally, November brought the end of the First World War, followed by a general election in which some women and a considerable number of younger men had the vote for the first time. All these events set the tone for 1919 another key year in the Decade of Commemorations.Cathy is an Historian in Residence (Dublin City Council, South Central Area).
