Kevin Barry: An Irish Rebel in Life and Death with Professor Eunan O’Halpin
Monday 2 November, 7.00pm
November’s ‘From The Linen Hall Archives’ marks the centenary of the execution of Irish republican Kevin Barry by the British during the War of Independence. In this talk, Professor Eunan O’Halpin will discuss his new book Kevin Barry: an Irish Rebel in Life and Death, and will also offer an insight into a Kevin Barry treasure held by the Linen Hall Library. The Ideal Book of Poetry was donated to the Library in c.1996 and contains Kevin Barry’s signature, annotations and scribbles throughout.
