@ Seanchaí—Kerry Writers’ Museum, Listowel

Roger Casement’s landing and arrest at Banna Strand has assured Kerry a place in the narrative (and song) of the 1916 Rising. The county was equally prominent in the War of Independence and in the Civil War, which was particularly bitter in the county. But what was happening before 1916? Was Kerry always a bastion of republicanism (or of Gaelic football)? What was the level of support for the Irish Parliamentary Party or British Army recruitment? To discuss these and related matters join History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham, in a lively round table discussion with:

Richard McElligott (Forging a Kingdom: the GAA in Kerry 1884–1934)

John Borgonovo (UCC)

Padraig Óg Ó Ruairc (OPW)

Tim Horgan (The Men Will Talk To Me: Kerry interviews by Ernie O’Malley)

and Tommy Graham

Opening address by Jimmy Deenihan TD, Minister for Arts Heritage and the Gaeltacht

“Too many histories . . .’? surveys of the past generation

Recorded at the Royal College of Physicians, Kildare Street, Dublin 2 (in association with the Irish Association and Dept. of Foreign Affairs) on 16 May 2013. 

Ireland’s leading historians discussed the major narrative histories of the past generation.

Joe Lee (Ireland 1912–1985: Politics and Society, 1990),  Éamon Phoenix (Northern Nationalism: Nationalist Politics, Partition and the Catholic Minority in Northern Ireland 1890–1949, 1994), Diarmaid Ferriter (The Transformation of Ireland 1900–2000, 2004), and Mary Cullen (Telling It Our Way: Essays in Gender History, 2013).

The event was introduced by as follows  Brian Kennaway Chairman of the Irish Association.

‘We want to give you all a very warm welcome to this event this evening. This is a joint event organised by History Ireland and the Irish Association. We want to place on record our appreciation for the funding from the Reconciliation Fund of the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade, without which these events would not be possible.

Both of us are marking anniversaries this year – History Ireland was established twenty years ago. We all appreciate the work of History Ireland and in particular the contribution Tommy Graham has made to the understanding of our history over the last twenty years. The magazine, both in terms of its content and its presentation, has set the standard for history magazines.

It is the seventy-fifth anniversary of The Irish Association for cultural, economic and social relations – oldest all Ireland organisation addressing the issue of relationships on the basis of cultural, economic and social differences. Formed in 1938 ‘to make reason and goodwill take the place of passion and prejudice in Ireland, north and south’, we do not consider our work to be complete. As others now occupy similar ground we are fostering working relationships with others like History Ireland and I.B.I.S.

We welcome you and I will now hand over to Tommy to introduce our speakers.’
