Spring Lecture Series 2015

Glasnevin Trust & Trinity College Dublin

'Becoming revolutionary: The year before 1916'

Sinead McCoole

'Elizabeth O'Farrell before 1916'

An illustrated lecture on Elizabeth O'Farrell (1883-1957) and her life before the Rising. Exploring the women who worked for Irish Freedom from her sixteenth year, how and why she bravely took on her role in the 1916 Rising. Examining her involvement in the Daughters of Ireland (Inghinidhe na hEireann), Cumann na mBan and Irish Citizen Army. The heroine who wrote her own account of her actions despite being airbrushed out of the picture.

Who were the Irish revolutionaries and how did they become involved in a cycle of events that would culminate in the rebellion of 1916? What were they doing in 1915? This series of lectures digs deeper than the rebel leaders, interrogating the lives of some of the not-so-famous revolutionaries, their thoughts, their hopes.

Sinead McCoole is a Historian, Curator, Script-writer and Broadcaster. She has published many books on female activists in the Rising, War of Independence, Civil War and the early years of the Irish Free State and curated exhibitions on Irish history and Irish Art both in Ireland and the US.

Thursday 26th March at 7pm, Glasnevin Cemetery Museum.
