The third Home Rule crisis: centenary perspectives Friday, 25th May, National Library of Ireland. May 16, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Thanks to BH for bringing notice of the following. For any of us interested in the decade of commemoration this is well worth a look in. On a slight tangent I’ve said it before, but I can’t help but feel that any efforts aimed at reshaping the history as regards reifying Home Rule are doomed to failure given the nature of that enterprise when examined closely. But that is no doubt a discussion for another day.
