This free event in Maynooth Library will include an illustrated presentation by the authors noting some of the key dates, personalities and events that took place in North Kildare in the 1922-24 period. National events will be included to provide context also. The presentation and timeline will highlight interesting socio-economic, sporting and cultural episodes from the Civil War.
