Brown Bag lunch with Ruan O'Donnell on Fenians: The Irish revolutionary movement of 1867 and America

Wednesday, December 13, 2017

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, December 13, with a presentation by Ruan O’Donnell entitled Fenians: The Irish revolutionary movement of 1867 and America. Dr. Ruan O’Donnell, Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Limerick and Visiting Chair of Irish Studies, Notre Dame (2010-11), is the author of numerous books on the history of Irish republicanism. His new title Patrick Pearse has been acclaimed as the “definitive biography, using a wealth of primary sources [which] establishes as never before the significance of Pearse’s activism all across Ireland.” The book contains important new information on Pearse’s activities in the USA, where he was the public face of the 1916 Rising. A noted public speaker, O’Donnell is a member of the “Universities Ireland Decade of Commemoration Committee” and the Irish Manuscripts Commission. He is currently Fulbright Scholar in Residence at the University of Montana.
