Event description
Join Hannah Tiernan on a walking tour of Ranelagh and Rathmines to learn about the hidden histories of the queer characters who lived there.

About this event

Did you know about the gay brothel in Rathmines that threatened to topple the British monarchy? Did you know there was a lesbian couple on Belgrave Road who fought for women's suffrage, ran field hospitals during the 2016 rising and later founded an infants hospital? And did you know about the quiet leafy park that was one of the busiest gay cruising spots in Dublin?

Tour leader Hannah Tiernan is a researcher, writer and visual artist. A Rathmines native, her core area of research is contemporary Irish queer history. Her current research focusses on lesbian activism from 1971 to 2015.
