Upcoming Event:

The 16th Literature of Irish Exile Autumn School

'War, migration and re-settlement'

Saturday 17th October 2015

 

In this Decade of Centenaries, commemorating 1912-1922, war is one of the main themes; war world-wide and war in Ireland. The focus of this year’s Autumn School will be on war-related migration. Our main speaker in the morning will be Mary Mc Cartan who has recorded and published A Long Road to Freedom, the oral biography of her grand-uncle, Patrick Mc Crystal (1920-2011). Mary’s talk will focus on his ‘re-settlement’ in Omagh after the Second World War. In the afternoon Margaret McNulty of EMBRACE NI will lead a panel discussion on the response of Northern Ireland to the current migration crisis, taking the ‘long view’ of ‘re-settlement’ after war in Irish history.
