Byrne Perry Our theme for 2017


Stories of 1798 in a changed Ireland : towards a renewed understanding of her traditions and conflicts.

Twenty years later after the bicentenary of 1798 our understanding of the rising and what it has to teach us has evolved and changed. This year’s Byrne-Perry weekend presents new perspectives on the conflict and their relevance to the rapidly changing relationships across the island of Ireland, with the United Kingdom and with Europe.

The weekend will include talks and discussions by leading public figures, academics and political  commentators,  as well as field visits to sites associated with the Wexford Rebellion and some of the prominent figures involved.
