Event description

Description

With a panel of guest speakers chaired by Tommy Graham, editor of History Ireland.

In 1986, the prominent maritime historian John de Courcy Ireland wrote: ‘the lives of island peoples like Ireland’s [have] been dominated by the seas encircling them. Yet this fact has been largely ignored by Irish historians.’ This History Ireland Hedge School asks why, three decades later, Ireland’s maritime history and heritage continues to be under-valued. Panellists will reflect on the potential of a better appreciation of Irish maritime history and heritage, to help improve understanding of Ireland’s relationships with the wider world over past centuries and into the future.
