The Second Irish Migration Studies MSSc Reunion Lecture - Centre for Migration Studies at the Ulster-American Folk Park, Omagh - Saturday, 8 February 2003
On Saturday 8 February Professor Nicholas Canny, Professor of History at the National University of Ireland, Galway, gave the second annual MSSc in Irish Migration Studies Lecture at the Centre for Migration Studies at the Ulster-American Folk Park. Professor Canny is one of Ireland's most distinguished historians and the author of the recently published, ground breaking work 'Making Ireland British, 1580-1650' (Oxford). Lecturing on the subject of 'The Impact of Migration Upon Seventeenth Century Ireland', Professor Canny developed many themes which were of great interest to the 59 students who have enrolled over the last seven years, to undertake this two year part-time Master's degree course, which is accredited by Queen's University, Belfast. Upwards of 60 people attended the event. Following the lecture, awards were made by Professor Canny on behalf of the Scotch-Irish Trust to the current top students in each year of the course, Mrs Gillian McGee and Mrs Mary Sullivan. This stimulating and enjoyable event closed with a buffet lunch served in the Library at MCMS.
