for tickets go to:-
Scotland and the Easter Rising, edited by Kirsty Lusk and Willy Maley brings together writers, journalists and academics to reflect on the part played by Scotland in 1916 and its legacies.
The Easter Rising is a defining moment in Irish history, laying the foundations of the nation. But 1916 also matters for Scotland, for the Irish in Scotland, and for Irish-Scottish relations. Edinburgh-born James Connolly was one of the leaders of the Rising, and a signatory to the Proclamation of the Irish Republic on Easter Monday, 24 April 1916.
Join the editors for this event, chaired by distinguished historian Owen Dudley Edwards and learn more about the Celtic Connections of 1916.
In association with Aye Write! Glasgow’s Book Festival.
