Irish Studies Program to Host Annual Lecture; Reflect on Dublin Lockout
The St. John Fisher College Irish Studies Program and the Rochester chapter of the Irish-American Cultural Institute (IACI) will co-sponsor the annual Bob Kelly Memorial on Thursday, October 24, to mark the centennial of an event known as the Dublin Lockout. The event takes place at 7:00 p.m. in the Golisano Gateway Midlevel.
This little-known (but significant) event in Irish history will be explored with a historical talk by Dr. John O’Sullivan. Musical selections by the Irish musical duo, Barry’s Crossing, will represent the lockout and other historical events. The Kelly Memorial Lecture is presented in memory of a co-founder of the local chapter.
This event is part of an ongoing series co-sponsored by Fisher’s Irish Studies Program and the IACI, a national organization devoted to promoting an intelligent appreciation of Ireland and the role and contributions of the Irish in America.
IACI members and Fisher students, faculty, and staff may attend the event for free, and general public admission is $10.
