Event description

Description

Dr Micheline Sheehy Skeffington’s lecture will trace the lives of her grandparents Hanna and Francis Sheehy Skeffington, who were feminists, nationalists, pacifists, socialists in early 20th century Ireland. Hanna was jailed several times for suffrage activities, Francis for his pacifist speeches against recruitment during WWI.

Francis was murdered by a British firing-squad during the Easter Rising in 1916, and Hanna embarked on a journey round the USA with their 7-year-old son, Owen to tell the truth about what happened to her husband and about British militarism in Ireland.

Micheline Sheehy Skeffington’s public lecture in Vancouver will describe her grandparents' lives and their role in Irish political life, leading up to and including Hanna's epic US tour in 1917/18.
