Centenary of the Irish Race Congress, Paris, 21-28 January 1922

Published in Hedge School Recordings, Podcasts, Uncategorized

Within weeks of the ratification of the Treaty by Dáil Éireann an ‘Irish Race Congress’ assembled in Paris representing Irish organizations from twenty-two countries. Inevitably the Treaty split overshadowed its proceedings. Did global Irish experiences moderate or radicalise expectations of Irish independence? What legacy did Irish sovereignty bequeath to the historical memory of the Irish diaspora? To address these and related questions join History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, in discussion with Darragh GannonDonal McCrackenDavid Brundage, and Anne Marie O’Brien.
