Women in the Church of Ireland and the Easter Rising

As part of Heritage Week (20-28 August) the Church of Ireland will be hosting a wide range of events including historical talks, tours and exhibitions.

On Monday, 22nd August, St Patrick’s Cathedral will host a talk on women in the Church of Ireland and their involvement in the Easter Rising of 1916. It will focus on three women in particular: Dr Kathleen Lynn, member of the Irish Citizen Army and Chief Medical Officer during the 1916 rising, Dr Isabella Webb who ran an emergency hospital at the War Supply Depot, and Dr Dorothy Stopford Price, whose diary from 1916 provides fascinating insight into the Easter Rising as seen by the British Administration in Ireland.

The event is free and no booking is required. The talk starts at 7.30pm and will end approximately at 8:30pm.
