The Abbey Rebels of 1916: A Talk by Dr. Fearghal McGarry
The Abbey Rebels of 1916: This talk will look at the experiences of seven members of the Abbey Theatre's cast and company who fought in the Easter Rising. It will consider the role played by cultural forces, particularly theatre, in politicising the revolutionary generation. It will also examine the lives of the Abbey rebels after the Easter Rising by exploring how the legacy of Ireland's revolution failed to live up to their radical expectations for social and political change.

Dr. Fearghal McGarry is Professor of Modern Irish History at Queen’s University Belfast. His recent research has focused on Easter 1916 and the Irish revolution. He is the author of The Abbey Rebels of 1916: A Lost Revolution and The Rising. Ireland: Easter 1916. With Richard Grayson, he edited Remembering 1916: the Easter Rising, the Somme and the Politics of Memory. Fearghal worked as a historical consultant on several Easter 1916 centenary projects including An Post’s commemorative stamp programme and the GPO Witness History interpretive centre.
