The Thomond Archaeological and Historical Society

The Thomond Archaeological and Historical Society will host the following talk on Monday 5 November 2018 by Dr Brian Hughes on ‘Everyday Life and Politics in Limerick in 1918’ at Mary Immaculate College, South Circular Road in Room T.1.17 Tara Building at 8.00p.m.

1918 was a significant year in Irish politics: a conscription crisis, Spanish ‘flu, an armistice in November, and a general election which saw (some) women vote for the first time alongside resounding victory for the emergent Sinn Féín. But rather than retelling the history of these important episodes in Irish History, this talk will instead offer some thoughts on the many ways in which ordinary life, and inherently local concerns, continued to intrude in the midst of significant national events. By taking a slightly broader view of what the people of Limerick were reading in their newspapers and discussing in their local authorities, the talk will also reflect on both the presence and the absence of national and international politics in the daily lives of the people of Limerick.

Dr Brian Hughes lectures in the Department of History at Mary Immaculate College. Among other publications on the Irish Revolution (c. 1912–1923), he is the author of ‘Defying the IRA? Intimidation, coercion, and communities during the Irish Revolution’ (Liverpool University Press, 2016).
