Keepers of Stories @ Nenagh Arts Centre

PLEASE NOTE: Vaccination Passports & Identification will be required to attend this event.

Join Professor Diarmaid Ferriter and Catriona Crowe in a conversation chaired by Mary Wilson in which they explore, in this period of the Decade of Centenaries, questions of “ownership” and the retelling the stories that over time shape us and the societies in which we live. Catriona Crowe is a prolific writer and broadcaster on this topic, amongst them her writings in the Dublin Review on the Mother and Baby Homes commission and its treatment of survivors as a reflection of both past and contemporary Irish life.

Meanwhile as we face into the Civil War centenary year Ireland’s most brilliant historian shows how important this tragic war was for understanding Ireland now. It was less devastating than some other European civil wars but it left a ghastly number of dead, injured and immiserated across Ireland, north and south. Only in 2019 – almost a century after the conflict – could Fine Gael and Fianna Fail, the two parties that grew out of the rival factions see their way to officially working together.
