Listen Back: COIHS Winter Conference Online 2020

Missed the last conference at online on 7th November 2020?

Unfortunately due to the current pandemic we were unable to hold our winter conference in our usual venue at the Music Room in Christ Church Cathedral. However, not to be outdone, the Society relocated to Zoom and were able to provide four superb papers from St Patrick to materials left behind by Dr Clodagh Tait’s grandmother!

Members of the Church of Ireland Historical Society can now watch and listen to the latest papers delivered by Professor Dáibhí Ó Cróinín on the lives and afterlives of St Patrick from Ussher in the seventeenth century to Roy Flechner in the twenty-first century; PDr Clodagh Tait on material culture and the decline of the Church of Ireland in the twentieth century; and Dr Aoife Bhreatnach on burying the poor in nineteenth-century Ireland.
