  • Sunday, February 4, 2018, 2 – 3pm , World War I and Irish Independence Lecture

  • Presented by Dr. John Day Tully who holds degrees from Boston University, Central Connecticut State University and Ohio State University. Dr. Tully’s presentation will center on the impact of World War I on Irish opinion and how it accelerated nationalists’ timetable in the struggle for independence from the United Kingdom. At a time when many Irishmen volunteered with the British Army, others organized the 1916 Irish Rebellion (Easter Rising). Dr. Tully will explore the various Irish responses to the war as well as Irish American efforts to support Irish independence during the conflict.
    The lecture will be held at the Knights of Columbus Museum, One State Street, New Haven, CT 06511
