The Protestant experience of 1916

On Saturday, 14 November there will be a one day conference examining how the Protestant community in Ireland experienced 1916 and the years that followed. Entitled Silenced Stories: The Protestant Experience of 1916, the event will begin at 9.30am in Renehan Hall, Maynooth University (south campus).

Speakers at the event include Professor Roddy Cowie from Queen’s University, Belfast, on the effects of 1916 on the Protestant psyche; Mr Ben Levitas from Goldsmith’s Universe, London,  on ‘Sean O’Casey and the unfinished revolution’; and, finally, Dr Miriam Moffitt, St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, who will explore how political upheavals in the early decades impacted on society.
