This week’s ‘FREE’ Bite Size Culture talk, which is the fourth remaining talk of this fascinating series, is on John Edward Redmond (1 September 1856 – 6 March 1918), who was an Irish nationalist politician, barrister, MP in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Ireland and leader of the Irish Parliamentary Party from 1900 to 1918.

He was a moderate, constitutional and conciliatory politician who attained the twin dominant objectives of his political life, party unity and finally in September 1914 achieving the promise of Irish Home Rule under an Act which granted an interim form of self-government to Ireland. However, implementation of the Act was suspended by the intervention of World War I, and ultimately made untenable after the Conscription Crisis of 1918.

It will take place in the award winning MEDIEVAL MUSEUM on Wednesday 26th November at 1.15pm, looking forward to seeing you there!
