Press Release - Promotion of Treaty Exhibition in Tipperary

Tipperary County Archives are delighted to host a free public lecture entitled:

Towards an understanding of Mary MacSwimey: Trauma and the Brixton Hunger Strike of 1920 by Dr. Leeann Lane, DCU
On: Tuesday, 10 May @ 7pm
At: The Source Gallery, Thurles

According to Dr Lane, an uncompromising stance on the Treaty negotiations was indelibly formed by the experience of watching her brother, Terence MacSwiney, die on hunger strike.
Dr Lane is currently working on a biography of Mary MacSwiney and we are very excited to be able to host her here in Tipperary in advance of that.
This talk is being held in conjunction with the major National Archives touring exhibition: The Treaty 1921 – Records from the Archives Exhibition following a three-month stint at Dublin Castle.

About this exhibition Joe MacGrath, Chief Executive, Tipperary County Council, said:

“Tipperary County Council is delighted to be afforded the honour of hosting the major exhibition ‘The Treaty, 1921: Records from the Archives’, presented by the National Archives, as part of its national tour. As a county which played a pivotal role in the War of Independence, Tipperary is very glad to welcome this exhibition marking the centenary of the Treaty which brought that war to an end, and ushered in the difficult birth of the new Irish State. The Council’s Archives, Libraries and Heritage Services will complement the exhibition through the display of local archives and artefacts relating to the period and will promote public engagement among school students, the research community, and the people of Tipperary.
We are very excited to play a part in making this landmark exhibition accessible to everyone.”
