    Centenary of Cumann na mBan

    Centenary of Cumann na mBan

      "Should the women of Ireland stand idly by while the most sacred things in life are at stake?" So asked Agnes O’Farrelly at a meeting of a new organisation of Irish women 100 years ago this week.   Cumann na mBan was formed at Wynnes Hotel in Dublin on 2 April 1914 where Louise Denvir met historian Ann Matthews to recreate the scene. Conor Mulvagh, lecturer in Irish History at UCD (and their man working on the decade of commemorations) joined Myles to talk about the origins and membership of the organisation.   Click here for Irish Times report 3 April ...

    The Curragh Incident

    The Curragh Incident

    In the tense months between March 1914 and the end of July that year, Ireland stood dangerously close to conflict. As the Home Rule Bill entered its final stages, the British Government became concerned that unionist volunteers were planning the seizure of arms in Ulster. So they decided to deploy extra troops to the North. However, a group of his fellow officers made a stand. They stated they would refuse any orders to carry out operations in Ulster which might result in a clash with loyalists. The British Army here was based in Curragh Camp in Co Kildare at that ...

    Centenary of Irish Volunteer Newspaper

    Centenary of Irish Volunteer Newspaper

    Roger Casement issued a rousing plea in the first issue of The Irish Volunteer newspaper which was launched one hundred years ago this week.   He was calling for volunteers to compete in the 1916 Olympics as Irishmen in their own right. The Games which were planned for Berlin, of course, never did take place. The Irish Volunteer which was first printed on the 7th of February 1914, marked an important milestone in the history of radical newspapers and military movements in this country.    UCD historian, Conor Mulvagh joined Myles to discuss its objectives and impact.   The Irish Volunteer [newspaper] By Conor Mulvagh ...

    Centenary of Irish Volunteers and Irish Citizen Army

    Centenary of Irish Volunteers and Irish Citizen Army

    One hundred years ago this week, on 19 November 1913, the Irish Citizen Army was launched to defend locked out workers in clashes with the police.  A week later, on the 25th of November, another military organisation, the Irish Volunteers was formed to safeguard the granting of Home Rule. The Ulster Volunteers had been formed the previous January to oppose it. The Irish Volunteers and the Citizen Army went on to take part in the Easter Rising and the War of Independence.   But one hundred years on, what questions need to be asked about commemorating the place of private armies in ...

    The legacy of Eoin MacNeill

    The legacy of Eoin MacNeill

    Although he's not as well-known as Collins or de Valera, the academic and politician Eoin MacNeill played an important role during the Irish Revolutionary period. A brilliant historian and scholar, he worked alongside many of the more celebrated leaders of Irish nationalism.    Next Saturday marks the centenary of MacNeill’s seminal article “The North Began”, which signified an important turning point in the struggle for Irish independence.  Lorcan Clancy looked back at MacNeill’s early life, and how he came to write “The North Began”.   Such was the strength of McNeill’s article that the Irish Volunteers were formed a few ...

    The 90th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War

    The 90th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War

    Like all civil wars, the one fought in Ireland in 1922 and 1923 was a bleak time for the country as it underwent a bitter struggle of conflicting ideologies. The eleven month long conflict pitted brother against brother and forged a long-lasting divide in Irish politics. The actions of the war’s leaders, Michael Collins and Eamon De Valera are still a matter of extreme disagreement. This week marks the 90th anniversary of the end of the conflict. Lorcan Clancy explored how this dark chapter of Irish history drew to a close. Myles was also joined in studio by historian Conor ...
