One of the greatest Irishmen of his day: Joseph MacDonagh
October 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
At different junctures in the Irish revolutionary period, he was a Sinn Féin activist, councillor, including for Rathmines Town Council, TD, and a political prisoner who went on hunger strike three times.
His revolutionary role reveals a charismatic, fascinating figure whose part in the fight for Irish freedom has been mostly obscure until now.
Talk presented by Gerard Shannon, a public historian of the Irish revolutionary period and author of the recent biography, ‘Liam Lynch: To Declare a Republic’.
