Thanks to Clare Library for History Week 2023

Post by Sduddy » Tue Oct 24, 2023 10:14 am

Last week was Clare Library History Week (https://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/library/doc_info.htm) and it was good to be able to listen to the talks that are available online – each one very interesting.
Last year Martin Bourke gave a talk on Nan Hogan, a member of Cumann na mBan, and told us of her time in Kilmainham gaol (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zubP280_C5U). This year she is mentioned again in a lecture entitled “Hearts Ne’re Waver: The Women Prisoners of the Irish Civil War”, by Brian Crowley and Aoife Torpey of Kilmainham Gaol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2evEX6Pmtc
