The Irish Volunteer Commemorative Organisation are happy to announce a lecture and display at the  The River Lee Hotel (formerly Jurys Hotel), Western Road, Cork City on  Friday, July 8th.

The subject of the lecture will be the Anglo-Irish truce of July 1921. This year marks the 90th anniversary of the agreement and the lecture will be the only event in Ireland thus far to mark the passing of this momentous event in Irish history.

The lecture will be given by  Irish Volunteer Commemorative Organisation member Padraig O’Ruairc. Padraig is a well known author and historian and many will be familiar with his books such as “Blood on the Banner” and “The Battle for Limerick City.”

The lecture will take place at 7 pm followed by a question and answer discussion period. The event will close at 9 pm.

An exhibition of Irish Volunteer items from 1913 to 1923 will be on display before the lecture and we will have members on hand to answer any questions from the general public.  The room will be open to the public from 5.30 pm.

This is an Irish Volunteer Commemorative Organisation event and we would request all members to attend if at all possible. Entry to members will be free.

Entry to the general public will be €5. Tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Space will be limited to 100 persons approximately.

More details to follow in June.
