    The Irish and World War One This August will mark the centenary of the start of World War One. We will be commemorating this anniversary on The History Show with special programmes and short items telling the stories of Irish people who were involved in the war. We will also be examining what was happening here during these turbulent years. Do you have relatives who were involved in the First World War? We would like to hear their stories.

    Erina Brady

    Erina Brady

      German refugee, Erina Brady set up Ireland’s first modern dance school in Harcourt Street in 1939.   She hosted dance classes for children in her studio by day and slept in one of its alcoves by night.   One of her students from those days, Ann Walsh spoke to Louise Denvir about Erina and her classes.  We played an archive piece from Deirdre Mulrooney's documentary Nice Moves featuring a reading from the memoir of Jacqueline Robinson, a former teacher of Erina Brady’s modern dance.

Diarmaid ...
