“Seeds that grew the tree” Winter Lecture Series

When: Wednesday, 12 December, 2018

The years between 2013 and 2023 commemorate the centenaries of some of the most important events in our history that have served to define us as a nation and as a people. The Decade of Centenaries initiative includes events such as the Dublin Lockout, the Great War, the Easter 1916 Rising, the first Dáil, the War of Independence, the signing of The Anglo-Irish Treaty and the ensuing Civil War. These events have touched most communities in Ireland as each are commemorated locally to recall and remember great people and great deeds. The Skehana area is delighted to be a part of these thus far and will continue to be into the future.
