Dublin Talk: Rebels and Refugees: Irish Sea Crossings during the 1798 Rebellion

Professor Mary-Ann Constantine of the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies looks at the stories of some of those who crossed the sea to Wales during the turbulent period of the 1798 Uprising. Some were rebels escaping reprisal; others simply fleeing from violence.

Join us for this talk in EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, CHQ, Dublin on 17 August, 6pm – 7pm.
