January Lecture; 1919 Waiting for Revolution

Des Marnane with the help of Cathal O’Donoghue will look at 1919 through a selection of contemporary documents. Des Marnane’s most recent publications are The 3rd Brigade: a history of the Volunteers/IRA in South Tipperary  and County Tipperary 1917-1921 – a history in 80 documents. The first part of his study of the civil war in South Tipperary will appear in Tipperary Historical Journal (2020). Cathal O’Donoghue is very involved in drama and musical theatre and took part in last year’s talk on the Soloheadbeg Ambush.
