East Wall History Group November Talks November 26, 2018

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Concluding this evening, Monday 26th November @ 8pm :

“Stacking the Coffins: influenza in Dublin , 1918-19.”

The 1918-19 influenza pandemic disrupted Irish society and politics. Records show that over 20,000 people were killed by the pandemic, but it is widely believed that the total number of fatalities was higher, because many deaths went unrecorded . This talk will describe in detail how the disease impacted on Dublin City a century ago, particularly within the densely populated Inner City and Dockland communities.

Guest speaker Ida Milne is the author of the recent “Stacking the Coffins, influenza war and revolution in Ireland 1918-1919” published by Manchester University Press.
