It will explore how Irish society evolved and changed, and how Church and State, individually and collectively, collaborated and influenced those changes, as well as examining important historical figures that helped shape events which left a legacy for many years to come. Often, the people who lived in their time were the catalysts for changes, good and bad, that affected the country and Dublin in particular. Against a backdrop of historical occurrences – such as rebellions, uprisings, major constitutional changes and wars – and the famous Irish men, women and Dubs who lived through those times and created our country and city, such as Jonathan Swift, Robert Emmet, Wolfe Tone, Daniel O’Connell, Charles Stuart Parnell, Lady Arabella Denny, Cardinal Cullen, Anna Haslam, Archbishop John Charles McQuaid, Maria Todd, Frank Duff, to name but a few, we will consider the interplay of circumstances and personalities and how we got to here.
