Irish Revolution History- Dr. Myles Dungan

October 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This four part series will take place every Monday starting October 14 and ending November 4th. Dr. Myles Dungan (PhD Trinity College, Dublin, 2012) will be leading the conversation.

For three years (1919-1922), Irish radical nationalists took on the military might of the British Empire in an uneven struggle. This short course examines how they fought their colonizers to a standstill, and achieved independence.

October 28 Topic: War in the Shadows: Michael Collins and covert intelligence

How Collins, as IRA Director of Intelligence, with deadly consequences, turned the tables on a British administration which had relied, heretofore, on the effectiveness of its own spies and informers.

Tickets are available at EventBrite and are $10.
