Professor Tim McGloughlin will explore the remarkable life of his grandfather, Alfred McGloughlin in a lecture to coincide with Kilmainham Gaol’s current temporary exhibition, “Intervals of Peace, the Civil War Prison Art of Alfred McGloughlin”. A nephew of Partrick and William Pearse, Alfred was an architect, artist, writer and political activist. Arrested in October 1922 during the Irish Civil War, he spent a year as a prisoner in Wellington Barracks, Hare Park Camp and Mountjoy Prison. Professor McGloughlin’s lecture will feature original material from his family’s archive, in particular a unique collections of portraits which Alfred drew of his fellow political prisoners, as well as material from the collections of Kilmainham Gaol and the Pearse Museum.
