The Irish Republican Brotherhood and the Easter Rising: A Continuity of Conspiracy.
Founded in 1858 the Irish Republican Brotherhood bestrode Irish history like a colossus and was the driving force behind Easter Rising. A secret oath bound conspiracy, they sought to overthrow British rule in Ireland by force of arms. In this lecture, Dr Shane Kenna will discuss the evolution of the IRB and its role within Irish history as a continuity of struggle culminating in the monumental Easter Rising of 1916.
Dr Shane Kenna, historian and biographer.
