Pádraic Ó Conaire and the Irish Revolution of 1916 to 1921
Join us for this lecture by Brendan McGowan of Galway City Museum as part of the Galway Archaeological and Historical Society series. The event is a collaboration with the Museum, Galway City Council and the Moore Institute, NUI Galway.

Born in Galway, raised in Connemara, educated at Rockwell and Blackrock, Paddy Conroy – as Pádraic Ó Conaire (1882-1928) was then known – emerged as the most exciting and widely-read Irish-language writer of his generation while working as a civil servant in London. He returned to Ireland in late 1915, starting a new chapter in his life. Ó Conaire obsessive, Brendan McGowan of Galway City Museum, will give an overview of Ó Conaire’s life and literary career prior to his return from London, before turning his attention to his activities from the time of the Easter Rising to the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty.
