Gerry White is a Cork military historian and author. Gerry will discuss the life of the former Lord Mayor of Cork (28 March 1879 – 25 October 1920) and events that lead to the Irish playwright, author and politicians’ death.  Terence MacSwiney's death on the 25th October 1920 after 74 days on hunger strike brought him and the Irish Republican campaign to international attention.

Dr Donal Ó’Drisceoil is a Senior Lecturer in History at UCC. He is one of the editors of the award-winning Atlas of the Irish Revolution.

New sources and research are complicating and deepening our understanding of the revolutionary years in Ireland. Using paintings, photographs, documents and maps featured in the Atlas of the Irish Revolution, this lecture will look at how we visualise the revolution and explore the current 'state of the art' of Irish revolutionary historiography.

Angie Shanahan, a visual artist in the narrative style, will give an illustrated talk on the influence Irish writers have brought to her work in recent years.  As a young graduate, Angie won a Taylor Bequest Award for painting and also a Vision Award adjudicated by James White, former Director of the National Gallery.  In the last year, she has exhibited in selected group shows in London, Sligo, Dublin, Cork, Berlin and New York. 

Angie works out of a studio on Wandesford Quay - the south channel of the River Lee - with the Backwater Artists Group which celebrates its 30th year in 2020. Like the river which weaves its way around the city and into the hearts of city dwellers, the influence of writers such as Derek Mahon, Tim Robinson, William Butler Yeats and William Wall has wound its way into Angie’s work, inspiring in her both an emotional and collaborative response.
