Description

Edinburgh Festival of Ireland: Niall Whelehan speaks on the Fenians and the Irish Revolutionary Tradition and the Wider World

This talk will explore the origins and importance of the Fenian movement of the nineteenth century. Rather than simply an Irish movement, the Fenians` activities and influences extended to Britain, Europe and North America, and they were frequently portrayed as a violent underground organisation of international dimensions.
