Diarmaid Ferriter: Ireland’s Favourite History Man

January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Professor Dairmaid Ferriter of University College Dublin will present his account of the civil war of 1922 – 23: “Between Two Hells: The Irish Civil War Centenary”. This will conclude our commemoration of the decade of historic centenaries, 1913 – 1923.   

He is an esteemed historian, writer and broadcaster whose recent book on the Irish Civil War has been widely acclaimed. Drawing on many previously unpublished sources and newly released archival material, he lays bare the course and impact of the Civil War, the lives it cost, the reputations it forged, the fate of its survivors and how this tragedy shaped modern Ireland.

He has been Professor of Modern Irish History at University College Dublin since 2008 and is the author of 12 acclaimed books on modern Irish history. Know to many for his television appearances and public engagements, he is here to open the Library and Heritage Centre at Newcastle’s Tyneside Irish Centre. This is a rare chance to hear him speak so book soon as it’s like to sell out fast!

This event has been organised in partnership with the Tyneside branch of the Historical Association.

Prior to the lecture, our Library and Heritage Centre will be officially opened at 6 pm by Sarah Mangan, Irish Consul General for the North of England.
