An Evening of Remembrance and Reflection.
An event marking the 100th anniversary of Tom Behan’s death, during the Civil War, on December 13th, 1922.
Brigit or Brigid & The Language of the Goddess – places Brigid in a wider European context, examines her place in Irish tradition and folklore, and the campaign to have a new public holiday on Brigid’s Day – February 1st.
- Equality Denied – In 1916 Irishwomen were promised equal citizenship, equal rights and equal opportunities but the 1922 and 1937 Constitutions denied women these rights. How much of this was a reaction to the opposition of so many women to the Treaty, or was it inevitable given the influence of the Catholic Church and Catholic Social Teaching?
- A ‘Just Transition’ and A Wetter Landscape? The lessons from the Just Transition process to date, and the transformation of the landscape via the Peatlands Climate Action Scheme.
- Art & Ecology Workshops Working with Primary Schools and Transition Year Students, Creative Rathangan Meitheal will three deliver workshops.
- A Ramble with Broy takes in places and people mentioned by Broy in his Witness Statement. Descendants of the people mentioned will act as guides. In addition - a series of short films will be made.
- Ummeras, Brigid and Rewetting Peatlands - a visit to Ummeras birthplace of Brigid and a walk on the newly rewetted peatlands will follow Seminar 1.
