Landed Estates & Irish Society will take place in NUIG’s Moore Institute on Thursday June 13 and Friday 14. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.
There will be 16 speakers across the event, including Prof William Smyth of UCC, editor of the recently-published Atlas of the Great Irish Famine, and Prof Philip Bull of La Trobe University, Melbourne, as well as a number of young researchers at NUIG, including Joanne McEntee, Conor Montague, and Laura Vickers.
