Dublin Families Surviving the Rising
This lecture explores the impact of the Easter Rising on ordinary people living in Dublin. It examines how Dublin families reacted to the eruption of war and rebellion in their city and how they coped with the disruption and distress caused by the Rising.

Rural Radicalisation: Farm Labourers in Revolt
As one war superseded another in the years leading to the establishment of the Irish Free State, the farmers and labourers waged their own battles in the countryside. This talk will explore why 1917-21 witnessed unprecedented levels of trade union organisation in agriculture and how the British and new Irish administrations responded to this major development.
