Between Ireland and the Holy Land: the choices of William Fitzroger

Time: 11.00-12.00pm

Place: Zoom  

Young Adults

How removed was Ireland from the Crusades? Thousands of miles in geographical terms, but perhaps less in geopolitical ones. At the end of the 13th century, William Fitzroger, Prior of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem in Ireland, found himself in a very uncomfortable situation, having to choose between royal service and obedience to his order. This lecture will explore the career of this "fighting monk", stuck between Irish rebels, a summons to the Holy Land and a very assertive English king.

Our City Our Books Bookclub: TransAtlantic by Colum McCann

Time: 8.00pm

Place: Zoom  

All audiences

Our March 'Book of the Month', TransAtlantic, is an acclaimed historical fiction novel by Irish writer, Colum McCann.

The movement of people between Ireland and the United States can be traced back centuries, with recently-elected U.S. President Joe Biden among millions of Americans who can claim Irish heritage. Just as Irish immigrants have helped shape the United States' evolution, North-American culture continues to influence and intrigue Irish society.

TransAtlantic spans two centuries, back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean, from the first non-stop transatlantic flight by Alcock and Brown through to Senator George Mitchell’s role in the Irish Peace Process negotiations.

The Tuesday session is for people who have read the current book of the month and want to enjoy a good discussion with other readers about the writing, the themes and their own response. We will also have an opportunity to chat and swap book recommendations with each other.
