    The Gathering

    The Gathering

    The week was consumed by the state visit of President Michael D Higgins to the UK, declared by everybody or almost everybody at least to have been a wonderful success...but it was business as usual at home, with the Public Accounts Committee continuing its investigations into Rehab and the terms of reference set for the inquiry into the Garda tapes...there was tragedy too of course with the death of 25 year old, Peaches Geldof. For a look back at the events of the week, Sean was joined in studio by Mick Clifford, Columnist with The Irish Examiner; journalist and Author, ...

    A Century of Irish Dance

    A Century of Irish Dance

    On this St. Patrick’s weekend, our focus is on the history of an integral part of our culture – dancing.   In the decades after Independence, where and how we danced was of huge concern to the Gaelic League, the State and the Catholic Church.

    Books about the Irish Revolutionary period

    The years 1912 to 1922 are the most significant in Irish history. This decade alone saw the Lockout, the Home Rule debates, the First World War, the Easter Rising, the War of Independence and the Civil War. A huge number of books have been published in recent times tackling various aspects of these game changing events.

    Citizens: Lockout 1913-2013 - Episode 1

    In episode one Citizens:Lockout 1913-2013 historians and writers including Padraig Yeates, Diarmaid Ferriter, Emmet O'Connor, Francis Devine and Mary Daly trace the roots of the Lockout, depicting Dublin in 1900-1912 and the arrival of Larkinism in Ireland through the Belfast strike of 1907. Authors James Curry, Mark O’Brien and Felix Larkin give an insight into Murphy as a newspaper czar while Ciaran Wallace explores the significance of the empire in Irish identity. ‘There was no burning desire by the majority to break free,’ says Wallace ‘certainly the nationalist favoured Home Rule, but it wasn’t the British Empire, for many it ...
