These discussions are intended to explore how to mark, or commemorate the centenary events in the years to 2023, with the end of the First World War and continued turmoil in Europe, the War of Independence, Civil War, violence, the extension of franchise and the foundation of both the Irish Free State and Northern Ireland. The second discussion, on ‘district council & museum services, will take place from 9am-1pm at PRONI, 2 Titanic Boulevard, Belfast, BT3 9HQ. Admission free but booking essential.
