This symposium will look at the Irish contribution to and experience of the First World War. As it falls between both centenaries, topics will include the Easter Rising and the Battle of the Somme but will also consider broader historical questions, relating to Ireland and the war.
Professor Alexander Watson, Professor Richard Grayson, Dr Timothy Bowman and Lar Joye will all speak at the event, with a discussion panel to follow which will include former President Mary McAleese and Ambassador Daniel Mulhall.
Our collection of First World War records is one of the largest in the world. It includes, amongst many other documents, service records, letters, diaries, maps and photographs. During the centenary we are opening up this collection and hosting a variety of events and exhibitions, engaging in key debates and topics from the war.
We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
