THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FEBRUARY 2021.
This talk, accompanied by images and live music, focuses on the lives of Margaret and Mary Brigid Pearse, sisters of Patrick and Willie who were executed for their roles in the Easter Rising of 1916.
The Pearse sisters have long been overshadowed by their famous brothers but they too travelled interesting paths in life, but this talk will explore their incredibly varied lives, as well as. Margaret and Mary Brigid’s relationship with their brothers, and the poignant disintegration of their own relationship following the death of their mother in 1932.
