Wicklow in the revolutionary decade (part 1, North).

While not in the vanguard of armed activity in the revolutionary decade, Wicklow was, nevertheless, active in other respects. Moreover, its unique characteristics—proximity to Dublin, pioneering development of tourism, and one of the highest Protestant populations outside Ulster—make it worthy of study. Listen to History Ireland editor, Tommy Graham in discussion with Rosemary Raughter (Greystones), James Scannell (Bray), Brian White (Enniskerry) and John Dorney (editor of ‘The Irish Story’).


Our monthly talks take place in the Royal Hotel, Main Street, Bray at 8pm(Postponed)
Admission €6, members free, all welcome to attend the talks.
