TUESDAYS @ 13.15, MARCH 2006 in the cathedral crypt.

As part of the 90th anniversary commemorations of the
1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, in its regular programme of
Tuesday lunchtime lectures, Christ Church will host
a series entitled: 'Church of Ireland rebels: 1916 and the
War of Independence', which will examine the lives of the
following four members of the Church of Ireland who
participated in the national movement during the
revolutionary period 1916-1923.

Tuesday 7 March
Profesor Christopher Murray

Tuesday 14 March
Senator Martin Mansergh

Tuesday 21 March
Dr Hilary Pyle

Tuesday 28 March
Dr Martin Maguire

The aim of the series is to consider the background, motivation
and extent of involvement in the nationalist political movement
of those who, given their background and upbringing, might have
been expected to take a very different view of political events at
the time. It is hoped that the lectures will cast light on a strand of
opinion which though small was influential, and remarkable in
terms of the history of relationships between religious persuasions
and political identities in Ireland.
