Theme:  “Glorious Forever? ”
Regional Perspectives on the 1916 Rising

The Summer school was set up to examine Irish history and literature from the eighteenth century onwards in an objective, professional and learned manner. The school has a broad appeal to those with an interest in how the last two centuries of Irish history, have shaped contemporary Ireland, North and South.

The Byrne/Perry Summer School is held on the last weekend of June from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon, (June 26th – June 28th, 2015).

Gorey, Co. Wexford is the location of the Byrne Perry Summer School.

Welcoming message:

The 1916 Rising is seen as an iconic and seminal happening in Irish History. It is a major foundational event in the progress towards Irish Independence and a key stimulus to that development. In yeats words, " all changed, changed utterly: a terrible beauty is born".

We will have a special focus again this year on Wexford: two sub themes Regional Perspectives and the Role of Women will be analysed and discussed with the help of two expert panels.

We look forward to seeing you in Gorey on the last weekend in June for another fresh, stimulating, participatory Summer School
