Mondays at the Mess: Dublin and the Irish Revolution

Explored over four consecutive talks with Historian Donal Fallon

From the gymnasium of Richmond Barracks, leading figures of the Irish revolutionary movement were identified for trial, many executed. But a new revolutionary leadership would emerge, and within just five short years, an Irish state was born.  These four consecutive online talks, led by Dublin Historian and lecturer Donal Fallon will explore the period known as the War of Independence – a term coined during the conflict – in the Irish capital. Drawing on Richmond Barracks itself, it seeks to explain how Dublin was different from the rest of the country in conflict, and how events here in Richmond Barracks were pivotal to the story.

These talks are free, and you can book your place below.
