History Roadshow – NOVEMBER Lectures

Myles Dungan’s History 100 Roadshow is on the road again this November & December. Killarney, Monaghan, Donegal, Cork, Dublin and Mayo are all among the stops on the Autumn tour. Check out the details below – there’s a talk coming to a town near you!

Ireland’s “Long Decade” – 1912-1923 – was the most turbulent and transformative time in the nation’s recent history. Partition, the 1916 Easter Rising, the War of Independence, the Irish Civil War, the 1913 Lockout all happened during those few years – and all, of course, in the shadow of World War 1. Upwards of 40,000 Irish people died as a result of the various conflicts, with many more maimed and injured, and many iconic public buildings destroyed.

From loss and destruction, however, began to emerge a new nation. Ireland’s fledgling self-government, the First Dáil, was established in 1919, the Anglo-Irish Treaty signed in 1921 and the Constitution of the Irish Free State adopted in 1922 – giving the vote to all Irish citizens over the age of 21, including women.

As Ireland’s “Decade of Centenaries” draws to a close, Pegasus Consulting is offering universities, colleges and institutions a unique package of presentations, many featuring the intersection of Irish, UK and US history.
