DCL326238The Proclamation of the Irish Republic promised to pursue the prosperity and happiness of the whole nation and to cherish its children equally. The scandals that have enveloped the principal institutions of the state over the last fifty years would suggest that it is an aspiration yet to be fulfilled.

Eddie Walsh (‘Look Left’ Irish Politics magazine), will explore the unfulfilled struggle towards a workers’ republic.  How progressive politics in Ireland from 1966 onwards failed to make significant lasting progress although many successes were achieved during the half-century.

Admission for this event is £3 and refreshments will be available.
